Summer Fun in NYC

June 04, 2018

Summertime is here and that means there will be lots of fun events and festivals taking place outdoors throughout the city. Here are two interesting and fun festivals taking place this June.

Big Apple Barbecue Block Party (June 9-10) - Block parties and BBQs are staples of summer, and this annual event is a perfect combination of both. Featuring local grill masters from Dinosaur Bar-B-Que and Hometown Bar-B-Que as well as some imports like Baker’s Ribs from Dallas and Rodney Scott’s Whole Hog from Charleston, this party takes place at Madison Square Park which is just minutes from the Broadway Plaza Hotel.

Egg Rolls, Egg Creams, and Empanadas Festival (June 17) - This unique outdoor festival celebrates the diversity of the Lower East Side and Chinatown by bringing together Jewish, Puerto Rican, and Chinese culture, traditions, and food. There will be live music, culture and language lessons, and of course lots and lots of delicious traditional dishes offered throughout the day. The home base of the festival, The Museum at Eldridge Street, is only about 20 minutes from the hotel.

COVID-19 Update: We are temporarily closed with plans to reopen August 1, 2020.
