Coney Island USA 2018 Spring Gala

Saturday, March 24, 2018, 7:30 pm-Midnight

Join us for a stellar celebration of all the things that make Coney Island unique!

Our annual spring gala is the flagship fundraiser for our non-profit arts organization. This year’s event will take place at Kitchen 21 on the boardwalk. Like our home at 1208 Surf Avenue, Kitchen 21 was formerly a Childs Restaurant. Newly restored, the landmarked building is the perfect backdrop for showcasing the performers, artists, personalities, and spirit of Coney Island. It stands as a symbol of the neighborhood’s colorful past and bright future.

International burlesque star Angie Pontani hosts the 2018 gala, featuring jazz by Brian Newman; live dancing by Dreamland Jivers; sideshow acts by “Purveyor of Amazement” Todd Robbins and Fibi Eyewalker; burlesque by Gigi Bonbon (Miss Coney Island 2018), Poison Ivory (Miss Exotic World 2016), and Edie Nightcrawler; and walkabout performances by Little Brooklyn plus others to be announced.
