The Big Apple Barbecue Block Party is happening this weekend on June 10 and 11 at Madison Square Park. It runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine.
Check out my previous post to read more about the logistics and details of the event. The most important thing I recommend is arriving early to wait in line if there is a specific vendor you want to try, as many vendors will sell out.
To help you get ready for this awesome annual event, here are all the food items you'll be able to buy this weekend.
