EVENT: Smorgasburg - November 8th (11.7.18)
If you’ve ever ventured to Brooklyn, you most likely heard about or checked out Smorgasburg, the largest weekly open-air food market in America, attracting 20,000-30,000 people to Brooklyn each weekend to eat from 100 local vendors—Saturdays on the Williamsburg waterfront and Sundays in beautiful Prospect Park. It launched May 21, 2011, as a spinoff of Brooklyn Flea, and has since launched dozens of small businesses and attracted millions of visitors. The New York Times dubbed Smorgasburg “The Woodstock of Eating."
Get excited: On November 8th, the Port Authority today will team with Smorgasburg and other World Trade Center tenants to host a three-day food festival and community block party on the Oculus Plaza.
On November 8, a community block party will be held to kick off the three-day event and run from noon to 7 p.m. The Thursday event will include music, a beer garden and multiple family-friendly children’s activities. On Friday and Saturday, November 9 and 10, Smorgasburg will operate a curated version of its world-class food market with about 20 vendors at the World Trade Center campus from noon to 7 p.m. each day.
The following Smorgasburg vendors have confirmed their participation: Bona Bona Ice Cream; Burger Supreme; Ca’pisci; Chef Katsu; Chickpea & Olive; The Choripan; D’Abruzzo; Dan & John's Wings; Dough; Home Frite; Jianbing; Mutz; Rai Rai Ken; Ramen Burger; Red Hook Lobster Pound; Ring Ding Bar; Sons of Thunder; Wood Fired Edibles and Yakitori Tatsu.
We will see you there!
