About the House of Vans
The House of Vans, the cultural hub for the original action sports shoe and clothing maker, is located at 25 Franklin Street in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn. Along with an indoor concrete bowl and outdoor skate plaza, this window into the world of Vans includes a permanent stage for concerts and enough space to pretty much do anything our imaginations allow. 2012 marks the 2nd year of Vans and FYF’s acclaimed Vans House Parties free summer concert series.
Vans supports and promotes music through shoe and clothing collaborations with prolific musicians and by creating innovative events like the Vans Warped Tour, Off the Wall Music Nights and concerts at the House of Vans. Pearl Jam, Iron Maiden, Iggy Pop, Descendents, KISS, Social Distortion, No Doubt, Slayer and Millencolin are just some of the acts to have collaborated with Vans for memorable projects that suit our “Off The Wall” lifestyle.
