New York's Australians are firing up the bbq and celebrating the summer together outdoors. A fun day outside after a year of isolation.

Powered by America Josh, Australian Women in New York, American Australian Association, and, and supported by the Australian Consulate-General New York, New York Kookaburra Cricket Club, and New York City Magpies.

A day in Prospect Park to catch up, play games, enjoy some live music by Australian artists, and celebrate life here in New York together (with a snag in hand).

We'll provide the sausage sizzle, a charity raffle, giveaways, sports, and entertainment. You bring a picnic, drinks, and your mates.

Everyone is welcome but tickets are limited, and registration is essential!
