Bring the whole family to NYCWFF’s annual Backyard BBQ hosted by Andrew Zimmern, chef and host of the beloved Travel Channel show Bizarre Foods, and Pat LaFrieda of NYC’s famed butcher Pat LaFrieda Meats. You can’t beat the view from our “backyard” on the rooftop of Pier 92, where this family-friendly event will feature some of the country’s most awarded pitmasters serving up delicious BBQ staples, innovative grilled bites, decadent desserts and fun and games for all ages. Cold beer, wine and cocktails will round out the biggest and best backyard bash of the year - the perfect way to spend your Sunday afternoon and close out our 10th Anniversary celebration!

SPECIAL FAMILY ACTIVITY: Check out the Schmackary’s interactive cookie experience with TV host and cookbook author David Burtka, where you and your children can decorate the ultimate cookie of your dreams!
