Bringing America?s finest barbecue to the heart of New York City, the third annual Big Apple Barbecue Block
Party (BABBP) will return to Manhattan on June 11th-12th, from Noon-6:00p.m. at Madison Square Park.
The community event will feature mouthwatering barbecue from 10 of the nation?s top pitmasters, live jazz, blues,
and bluegrass, distinctive beverages, films, seminars with ?cue experts, merchandise and more. Admission to the
block party is free, including live music and seminars. Food, beverages, and merchandise are available for
purchase with proceeds benefiting the Madison Square Park Conservancy (MSPC).
This year?s BABBP, produced by Karlitz & Company, will be bigger and better than ever, with more space, more
pitmasters, and more music! Hailing from the nation?s barbecue capitals, 10 Pitmasters (four more than last year!)
will take over Madison Avenue between 23rd and 26th street, to serve up award-winning ?cue. Use your credit card
or cash right at the pits to purchase savory swine (no tickets necessary).
