The Waterfront Museum in Red Hook presents What’s Dis?! with The Grand Falloons on Sunday, July 28, 2019, at 2pm.

A Daffy Duck-esque romp through the Great American Vaudeville of the 1920's when a stuffy professor and a latecome bring comedy, juggling, magic, slapstick, audience participation, the live music of Brahms, Gus Kahn and Irving Berlin, a virtuoso concertina, a saxophone, infectious song and dance and the SQUARE BUBBLE! You'll love the Grand Falloons!

The GRAND FALLOONS, 20 year veterans of New York’s Big Apple Circus, are "Theatricals." These "Theatricals," have spanned the globe for the past twenty years with stilt dancing, magic, live music, puppetry, fantastical design and their original plays.

Museum History

The Waterfront Museum was founded in 1986 to provide programs in education and culture aboard an historic vessel and to advocate for and expand public waterfront access in the NY Metropolitan area.

The Museum relocated to Red Hook, Brooklyn in 1994 as a permanent homeport after operating in Liberty State Park in Jersey City & Hoboken, NJ; Piermont, NY; and South Street Seaport, NYC.

Coming to Red Hook in 1994, an ambitious group of volunteers transformed a former dumping area into what has been cited by the Neighborhood Open Space Coalition as "an ideal example of open space and waterfront access which provides an excellent complement to waterfront development". The Museum's permanent collection includes a nearly one-century old wooden barge, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

There’s nothing like a magical night under the stars listening to music. When that experience includes one of my favorite artists appearing in one of my favorite places in the world, it’s at the top of my bucket list.

It all came to be with a simple Facebook post.

50 years ago, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon.

On July 20, 1969, humans walked on another world for the first time in history, achieving the goal that President John F. Kennedy had set in 1961, before Americans had even orbited the Earth.
