Summer has acquired tangible form in the past couple of days, and there’s nothing better than spending these sweet days before the city turns into one large sauna hanging out at various Bushwick events. 

This week again we selected the most promising events for you from our community calendar. Every member of our community can use the calendar entirely for free. So if you’re an event goer, jump on the calendar and fill your agenda with pure Bushwick awesomness. If you’re an event organizer, make sure you list all your events for the community to see.
