It’s the return of Pig Island! As in the past, the event teams local farmers with up-and-coming chefs, who—alongside New York brewers and vintners—bring the best of New York State to New York City. In addition, this year will host a “Chefs’ Band” on our stage. Pig Island benefits Food Systems Network NYC.

- Butchering and cooking demos brought to you by Wüsthof.
- Great local craft beer by Sixpoint (Brooklyn), providing exclusive custom beers.
- Veggie Pavillion brought to you by Microplane and Cathy Erway.
- Music all day with live bands.
