Great GoogaMooga Festival To Return To Brooklyn
Whether you’re a die-hard foodie or a budding chef enrolled in culinary class online, food festivals are a must-visit to stay engaged with the current food scene. The Great GoogaMooga food festival is one such event, and in its second year, organizers have dedicated themselves to fixing last year’s issues to create “the ultimate sensory experience.” Head to Brooklyn’s Prospect Park on May 17-19 to put your culinary academy-heightened palate to work tasting some of the area’s best food and drink.
“Great GoogaMooga is a celebration of food, music and Prospect Park – three things that make Brooklyn such a wonderful place to live, work and play,” said Emily Lloyd, president of the Prospect Park Alliance, according to CBS News.
The event will feature cuisine from 85 restaurants as well as 100 different wines, 75 beers and live musical performances. Big-name eateries have joined the circuit for the 2013 event, including Eataly, Joe’s Pub, Craftbar and The Meatball Shop, as well as returning participants Momofuku Milk Bar, Dinosaur BBQ, Calexico and Crif Dogs.
Those with dietary restrictions will be happy to learn that this year, the festival will feature more gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options.
