The annual Big Apple Barbeque Block Party takes place on the second weekend every June in Madison Square Park. The event draws some of the country ’s award winning pit masters and thousands of barbeque lovers from different parts of the U.S. and the rest of the world. The Big Apple barbeque is a celebration of the authentic American culinary and musical tradition. It is a weekend long event where one can enjoy some delicious food, cooking demonstrations and seminars, and live musical entertainment.

Proceeds from the Big Apple Barbeque Block Party go to Madison Square Park Conservancy, whose mission is to maintain this beautiful historic park for public.
