Jamaica’s largest party experience, Dream Weekend, is planning a major comeback within the diaspora, with its New York staging from August 27 to 29th.
The party series returned to Jamaica just weeks ago after postponing its 2020 event due to the pandemic. With the United States reopen, the event is looking to bring together Jamaicans and other Caribbean nations in New York.
Carlos Philpotts Marketing Director of Dream Entertainment says their team has used the pandemic to retool and re-evaluate their events.
“We have to be innovative in these times. We have amazing plans as Dream takes on public events once again; our outlook and our objectives are going to be different but nonetheless exciting and entertaining, possibly revolutionary!” Philpotts disclosed.
“We have received tremendous support from the Caribbean community in New York and we are humbled,” he added.
Plans are in high gear for the inaugural staging in New York at the Brooklyn Hangar.
“Plans are well underway for New York. In fact, we have a team in the city right now, finalizing sponsorship and supplier agreements, as well as security and logistics. We are expecting an amazing turnout and patrons can expect only the best from us, in terms of safety (Covid compliant procedures), entertainment, bar and bottle services as well as catering. Dream plans to make a lasting impression in the NYC, we are quite encouraged that our early birds tickets are almost sold out, for which we are truly grateful to our supporters,” Philpotts said.
