We'll provide the space, seating, and setting—guests will gather with hundreds of Park friends, prepare their perfect meals paired with their favorite wine and beer, or enjoy pre-planned packages from local merchants. We hope you'll join us for a night of food, community, and dancing as we commemorate FGPC's 20th Anniversary, celebrate our historic park, and honor the neighbors who make it truly monumental.
Event attendees are encouraged to add their personal touch to the event by planning an inspiring table setting—prizes will be awarded to the most creative tables! A silent auction will also be held alongside the event offering incredible prizes.
Proceeds from the event will support FGPC's ongoing efforts to steward and advocate for Fort Greene Park. Tickets for Monumental 2018 will start at $45. Reserved tables will also be available for purchase, ensuring group seating for ten, and special sponsorship packages will also be offered.
FGPC is excited to announce the honorees of Monumental 2018!
