Don’t Care How You Get Here, Just Get Here If You Can…

Getting There

Every year, over 130,000 food and music lovers travel from near and far to enjoy everything this festival has to offer. The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party takes place all day long Saturday and Sunday (June 9 – 10, 2018), and all are welcome! It’s a wildly fun outdoor bash bringing the best in barbecue, great live music, craft beer, summer-ready wine, and incredible sides & sweets.

Nestled in the heart of NYC, the whole of Madison Square Park and side streets surrounding the NoMad, Flatiron, Chelsea, and Gramercy Park neighborhoods.
