Pig Island

Break out your loosest-fitting pants, because the porkcentric bacchanal is back, this time in Red Hook. Twenty-five chefs—including Danny Mena (Hecho en Dumbo), Evan Hanczor (Parish Hall) and Bill Fletcher (Fletcher's Brooklyn Barbecue)—will break down 80 locally sourced hogs for unlimited plates. Drinkers can find Sixpoint Brewery beers—including an event-exclusive Signal smoked ale—along with Hudson Valley hard ciders and Finger Lakes wines. Watch a cooking demonstration with Bacon Nation author Peter Kaminsky, and enjoy live sets by djembe-driven folk outfit SisterMonk and eight-piece bluegrass band NYCity Slickers. Ticket proceeds benefit Added Value, a Red Hook nonprofit teaching teens about urban agriculture.
