Williamsburg/Greenpoint has become a grand oasis of the arts. People are visiting our artists, galleries, fashionable shops, and restaurants from around the world. So we have created the Williamsburg Arts & Culture Festival (WAC Festival) to introduce our entire smorgasbord of offerings to the world in one great happening. We invite you to enjoy a weekend of art, local history and fine cuisine, and at the same time participate in celebration of the International Artist’s Community.
