Your only destination to all things CARNIVAL
Following the runaway success of Pinknic’s 2016 debut, New York City’s largest rosé picnic and music festival returns to Governors Island this June for a two-day summer fête. 2017’s Pinknic is going to be full to the brim with delectable food, lively entertainment, and, of course, everyone’s favorite pink drink. But that’s not all. This year, we’ve got a few more tricks up our sleeve.
Saturday and Sunday, over 12,000 guests all dressed in pink and white, will be invited to take a seat on one of the thousands of rosé-colored, designer-made picnic blankets. From noon till sunset, Governors Island will be transformed into a sea of pink, the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline offering the perfect backdrop for this much-anticipated affair.
We’ll be pouring exclusively rosé wine from Château D'Esclans in Provence, rosé Champagne from Pommery and delicious frosé cocktails! We’ve teamed up with celebrity chef Chris Santos once more, who will be crafting some undeniably delicious Pinknic Baskets, available for preorder on pinknic.com. Selections will be available for easy pickup the day of the event. This year, we’re introducing a food court, where guests can order dishes from Santos’ own NYC restaurants --Vandal, Beauty & Essex, Stanton Social -- as well as ice cream, crêpes, pop corn and more.
Last year set the bar when it came to live entertainment, and this time around there will be plenty of exciting live performances from Classixx, Penguin Prison, Purple Disco Machine, Tortured Soul, C.M.A., Willy Monfret and a very special guest! Grab a seat on the Pinknic Ferris Wheel and watch all the fun from above. As a bonus, we’re introducing a new premium lounge, Les Cabines & Pool Lounge, where guests can grab a drink, relax on beach chairs, and cool off in our pool.
Pinknic is quickly becoming a New York City summer tradition. We hope you’ll join us this year.
