The 13th annual BBQ fest in Madison Square Park is Saturday/Sunday, June 13/14, featuring top pitmasters from around NYC and the rest of the country, microbrews, and more.
The VIP Pass is $275, up $10 from last year, and includes no line-cutting privileges for unlimited BBQ, food and wine, a shaded lounge to sit and eat and drink, and air-conditioned comfort stations.
The price for FastPass line-cutting tickets has not been announced yet. Last year it was $125.
Also being announced tomorrow are the 2015 pitmasters participating. Last year’s participating BBQ joints included NYC’s, Blue Smoke, Alabama’s Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q and Illinois’ 17th Street Bar and Grill.
Or, you could go for the FREE music, which includes The Roosevelts from Austin and Lissie from Brooklyn last year. Or the FREE seminars on how to smoke and grill better.
