Event Overview:

The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party is the nation’s largest culinary and music festival dedicated to the best in barbecue. The free, weekend-long event is set in the heart of New York City. Each year, hundreds of thousands of guests flock to the festival to enjoy mouthwatering ’cue from the world’s most celebrated Chefs and Pitmasters.

Founded in 2002 by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group, the Big Apple Barbecue Block Party has evolved from a single-street affair on 27th Street to a large scale annual festival that stretches across a handful of city blocks in and around Madison Square Park. In addition to all the wonderful sites, smells, tastes, and sounds, guests can feel good about the event’s charitable mission, with proceeds benefitting the Madison Square Park Conservancy. Since inception, over $1.3 million has been donated to MSPC  to support its beautiful gardens, amenities, and world-class art and civic programming.

Slow & Low, That is the Tempo…

The festival is rooted in a deep appreciation for the culinary traditions of barbecue. The culinary talent features the absolute best Chefs and Pitmasters from around the country. The entire Flatiron neighborhood is transformed virtually overnight into a barbecue-lover’s paradise, with the biggest names in the game setting up shop in the middle of Manhattan, smoking up that skyline.

Take a trip around the barbecue belt in the middle of NYC. We’re bringing you the most spectacular, nuanced regional barbecue styles for only $10/plate.


Music is an integral piece of this spirited event, with buzz-worthy bands performing continuously Saturday & Sunday on the main stage in Madison Square Park. Live performances are free and open to all guests.
