New York City has some of the best events in the world, year-round. Regardless of the season, you are able to find parties going on practically on a daily basis. But, we do have to agree that when spring and summer comes, New York City transforms into an even more amazing city!

Everyone is out on the streets, outdoor events are endless, people are definitely happier and the FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), is back in action.

We’ve attended a few rosé inspired events in New York City, but when we went to Pinknic’s first NYC edition, we were in awe.

The event was flawlessly organized, the rosé labels were infinite, guests were having fun, food was delicious and the music, just right for a great evening!

This year, they are back again and will have their 2nd Pinknic gathering at Governors Island.

Here is what they say:

“Following the runaway success of Pinknic’s 2016 debut, New York City’s largest rosé picnic and music festival returns to Governors Island this June for a two-day summer fête.

Like their inaugural party, 2017’s Pinknic is going to be full to the brim with delectable food, lively entertainment, and, of course, bottles of rosé wine, rosé champagne and frosé cocktails!

This year, they’ve pulled out all the stops. In addition to custom-crafted Pinknic Baskets, celebrity chef Chris Santos will also be helping curate a food court.

Guests can watch the festivities from above on our Pinknic Ferris Wheel. Les Cabines ticket holders are invited to lounge and relax by their very own private cabana and cool off in their pool!

There will be live performances from bands and DJs throughout the weekend, as well as gravity-defying acrobats, stilt walkers, jugglers, and more.

Six thousand guests are expected each day, all dressed summer chic in pink and white. Seated on their rosé-colored Pinknic Blankets, attendees will help transform Governors Island into a sea of pink. Plus, see the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan skyline offering the perfect backdrop for this much-anticipated affair.

Pinknic is quickly becoming a New York City summer tradition.”

So, if your enjoy these gorgeous, upscale events, this is the place for you! Hope to see you all there this year!

Tickets on sale through their website.

Take a look at their first NYC party. It was still winter, so it was inside a secret warehouse in Chelsea. The summer editions are fantastic!

Governors Island also hosts other events during the year like Governors Ball and the Jazz Age Lawn Party. Check them out and let’s party at Governors Island!

Even though this party is quite well known by New Yorkers and tourists, it’ one of the best events in New York.

The Jazz Age Lawn Party is an outdoor day party on Governor’s Island that takes you back on a journey. What to expect? Amazing music, dances, great food & drinks and performances.

As a result, guests dress up with very creative clothes and props. It definitely gives you a nostalgic feeling of experiencing the 1920’s and 1930’s.

More about the Jazz Age Lawn Party:

“The Jazz Age Lawn Party, now in its 11th year, is New York City’s original prohibition era inspired gathering. Hosted and conceived by Michael Arenella in 2015, the event started as a small gathering of fifty friends.
They came together on Governors Island to revel in the music of the Jazz Age, as performed by Michael Arenella and His Dreamland.

The event is carefully crafted and nurtured, growing into one of New York City’s most beloved summer events. This historically sold out event attracts 20,000 fans over two weekends. Guests come together to discover music and zeitgeist of the 1920s and 1930s. Plus, they learn the hottest dance steps of the time, frolic in their flapper dresses and glad rags. Plus, they enjoy sophisticated bites and vintage-inspired cocktails in a romantic, playful setting.

The event is consistently selected by the New York Times as one of “New York’s most memorable events”. The party offers a unique, interactive experiences.”

Lastly, costumes are not mandatory, but yes, dressing up as if you were in living in 20’s and 30’s is recommended.
