Big Apple Barbecue Block Party Update

After 16 years the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party will no longer occur in Madison Square Park, as the event has outgrown the Park and the neighborhood.

Established in 2002 by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, the Big Apple BBQ is an annual, open-to-the-public barbecue and music festival. In its time in Madison Square Park, the event has raised over $1.6 million for Madison Square Park Conservancy.

This will not mark the end of the popular barbecue festival, as organizers search to find a new location for the 140,000 people that attend every year.
