- In May, this will be a mess
New details have emerged about the Great GoogaMooga, the unfortunately named food, drink and music festival
coming to Prospect Park in May. Organized by the folks behind Bonnaroo, the two-day affair will feature 75 food vendors, 35 brewers, 30 winemakers and 20 musical acts; the latter are yet to be determined, but more information on the food and drink was released yesterday.
The vendors will be organized into themed "pavilions," such as those dedicated to pizza, burgers, sweets, and pig. ("THE HAMAGEDDON setting the deliciousness of the pig against a rock and roll inspired design and featuring bacon selections by Allan Benton.") There will also be pavilions for beer, curated by the Brooklyn Brewery's Garrett Oliver, as well as for domestic and international wines.
Participating food purveyors include Vinegar Hill House, the Spotted Pig, M. Wells, The Meat Hook, Luke's Lobster, Colicchio & Sons, Roberta's, and many more. A full list is available at the website.
Tickets to the Great GoogaMooga will be free, but will require advance registration, which will begin at noon on March 15.
