You’ll want a ticket for this ride. The Great GoogaMooga Festival takes place in Prospect Park on May 19-20, and this year the music, food and drink festival features several Clean Plates-approved restaurants: Craft, Colicchio and Sons, Dirty Bird To-Go and Vinegar Hill House. Each can be found in the themed food and drink pavilions designed by the Rockwell Group. Anthony Bourdain and JustFood, an organization that champions the growth of sustainable food programs, are collaborators for the festival.

The festival has a number of activities, programs, and food vendors focused on sustainability and making healthy choices, with educational experiences planned as part of the fun. The UrBarn experience, with its “Farm-to-Fork” emphasis, will host workshops and interactive demonstrations focused on nutrition, sustainability, and the journey of ingredients from the earth to the table.

The GoogaMooga Festival is free to attend, but tickets must be reserved in advance. Tickets are also on sale for ExtraMooga, an area where chefs will offer tastings along with music and comedy performances, and celebri-chefs like David Chang and Marcus Samuelsson are scheduled to make appearances.
