Here are a few things you might want to know ahead of your visit to PHOTOVILLE.

Where does Photoville take place?

Photoville is happening in ALL 5 boroughs this year! While our Photo Village in Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO came down after June 16th, over 20 exhibitions will be on show throughout the summer in some incredible outdoor spaces we’ve been lucky to partner with in Manhattan, Queens, The Bronx and Staten Island.

When does Photoville take place?

Photoville 2024 has wrapped! The festival ran from June 1 to June 16. It all began with our Opening Weekend community celebration on June 1-2 in Brooklyn Bridge Park, where we had in-person activities, evening programming, and of course lots and lots of photo exhibitions!

Outdoor exhibitions remain open to the public across the city.

Other programs, including online professional development, safety clinics, and in-person tours and events hosted by our partners took place throughout the month of June. 

Is there a ticket charge?

No! All exhibitions and online talks are open to the public and free of charge.

Because we hope to continue Photoville in the coming years, a suggested donation of $5 is encouraged and appreciated to secure the longevity of this community event. Donations can be made online here.

This can’t-be-missed visual storytelling event included curated tours, workshops and nighttime programming; all the fun of a two week festival in one jam-packed weekend in Brooklyn Bridge Park. There was something for everyone!

Community celebration: Park Safety

Please note that outside alcohol and glass bottles are prohibited on the lawn and throughout Brooklyn Bridge Park. We’re excited to bring back Smorgasburg once again to Photoville! For your food and drink options, including alcohol, please visit our Smorgusburg friends throughout the day. Outside food is permitted.

Please note there will be a bag check at the entrance to the lawn, where the nighttime programming takes place. This is to ensure the above policies and to maintain the beautiful outdoor space and safety of our attendees, so we can all enjoy the event together!

Please bring blankets.

Chairs (other than wheelchairs) are not allowed on the lawn.

Dogs are not allowed on the lawn, per Brooklyn Bridge Park rules, so keep that in mind if you bring your furry friends.

Restrooms are available near the entrance of Pier 1, and Porta Potties will be available on the festival grounds.

Wheelchair Accessibility

This year’s Photoville will include a limited number of shipping containers, all of which are equipped with wheelchair accessible ramps, and all other exhibitions will be in outdoor public spaces at street level.
