Broadway shows. Ice skating. Shopping. Drinking on rooftops. Gallery hopping. Sure, these are the classic experiences one looks for when visiting New York. But if you want to encounter a new, more fun, and completely unique side of New York City, nothing’s better than Pinknic. The gorgeous grounds of Randell’s Island Park is completely transformed into a dreamlike pink and white rosé-drenched paradise as thousands of guests relax on pink picnic blankets listening to fresh beats by incredible live artists for two whole days. Take a dip in the incredible fairytale swimming pool, where you might even get to meet a mermaid.
Since its beginnings in 2016, it’s become a well-loved summer tradition in the Big Apple and is now considered an iconic experience, one that the locals look forward to every summer. Pinknic’s novelty as the first and biggest music festival celebrating rosé has not gone unnoticed: it’s been featured in an array of publications including Vogue, Nylon, Marie Claire, Today, ABC Nightline, and Thrillist to name a few.
‘Pinknic takes you into a world where the rose-colored glasses are no longer needed, as Governor’s Island turns into a magnificent sea of pink as you sip rosé all day while listening to incredible live music.’
Aside from rosé, there will be overflowing wine, cider, and cocktails. In between sips, indulge in delectable gourmet food from the finest establishments and celebrity chefs in New York City. Oh, and coming in pink and white isn’t optional: it’s mandatory, so make sure you and your friends come in your coolest summer chic outfits. The festival ends with a bang: no less than visually arresting fireworks are set off at sunset to culminate Pinknic. Previous editions have featured Autograf, Klingande, Purple Disco Machine, Penguin Prison, and more. The 2019 lineup will no doubt will be even more fun!
