BRIGHTON JUBILEE 2021
Starting at 10 am on Sunday, Aug.
29, Brighton Beach Avenue will be
home to an array of stages, featuring
cultural performances and Brooklynbased
bands from Corbin Place to Coney
Island Avenue, and turning south
toward the beach. Local radio stations
like 95.5 FM K-Love Radio and Radio
Freedom FM 104.7 will also take part
in the afternoon’s entertainment as
bargain dealers and food purveyors
line the thoroughfare.
Attendees can also stop by informational
booths hosted by city agencies
and local nonprofi ts. And for those
who are still unvaccinated, a NYC
Health and Hospitals mobile vaccination
truck will be on hand to administer
the lifesaving jab at the street festival.
“We have been spearheading a fi ght
to get people to vaccinate themselves,”
Singer said. “I have it and my family
all have it because I had COVID and
it’s no joke.”
The Jubilee typically draws hundreds
of thousands of people to the
prominently Russian enclave and
serves as the Brighton Neighborhood
Association’s main fundraising event,
which Singer said is especially crucial
as they are facing some fi nancial hardship
after forgoing last year’s event.

Making matters worse, the group saw
a grant expire amid the pandemic.
“We made it through but it’s been a
rough time,” she said, “so we are hoping
to also make this fi nancially successful
to have a little money there.”
