18th Annual Blues BBQ Festival

Saturday, August 19th at 2pm

At Hudson River Park's Pier 97, Cross at W59th Street in Clinton

With free cultural and educational events happening all summer long, the Blues BBQ Festival is a celebration of all Hudson River Park has to offer.

Hudson River Park, which extends from Chambers Street to 59th Street along Manhattan's west side, is the longest waterfront park in the United States. This free, urban recreational oasis is home to award-winning skate parks, playgrounds, sports fields, gardens and nature exhibits, boating and maritime activities, art installations, and myriad year-round events that celebrate the diverse cultures and neighborhoods along its shores. The Park plays a critical role in protecting the Hudson River ecosystem, and though it receives no public operating funds from state and local government, its development has transformed four miles of decaying piers and parking lots into a premier New York City destination for local residents and visitors alike. The non-profit, Friends of Hudson River Park helps to ensure the Park's ongoing sustainability by serving as its primary source of fundraising, advocacy and support, working in concert with the Hudson River Park Trust, the city-state entity that oversees its design, construction, operation and maintenance.
