The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party is one of our favorite events. This year’s festivities will be held June 8-9 at Madison Square Park in New York City. This one-of-a-kind festival brings together 17 of America’s most celebrated pitmasters to showcase the best of regional American barbecue. This is a charity event and a portion of the proceeds benefits the Madison Square Park Conservancy.
If you’re planning to attend, click over to the Block Party website to buy your Fast Pass NOW. They WILL sell out! You can purchase a pass for Saturday and/or Sunday and it allows you and a friend access to a faster line behind the rows of pitmasters. Each pass costs $125 and has $100 worth of punches you can redeem for barbecue at any of the pitmasters’ stands.
Keep an eye out here for more information as the event draws near … and we’ll be doing a special giveaway to celebrate the 11th anniversary of the event.
