The 11th annual Pig Island Festival was held on Saturday, September 12th. It was presented by Food Karma which hosts several foodie events throughout the year.

Pig Island is an annual BBQ pork festival which pitted over 20 Chefs, Pitmasters and Vendors in a competition using locally sourced pork to create the best pork dish of the day.  

This year the event change location from it’s long time spot in Red Hook Brooklyn to the Snug Harbor Cultural Center located at 1000 Richmond Terrace Road in Staten Island which is a 10 minute bus ride from the ferry terminal. 

The Snug Harbor Cultural Center is an 83 acre parkland. The home of a 19th century charitable rest home for sailors, it’s been converted to a park open to the public and contains museums, an arts center, an urban farm and several gardens.

It was a “socially distant picnic” where there was more than enough open space at the event to comply with the social distancing mandates with more than enough room to walk around while sampling the food and drink, lay down a blanket and enjoy the beautiful late Summer day. 

For the adults there was beer from Flagship Brewery and Kills Boro Brewing Co., ciders from Austin East Ciders and Romilly Cider and whiskey from Knob Creek and Laphroiag.
