Pinknic set a new standard for peak summer when it debuted last year, bringing a wine-centric weekend of picnics and dancing to Governors Island. This year’s Pinknic returns on June 24 and 25, with more of all your favorite summer things.

To start, guests will have four more hours of summer vibes, with the festival extending its hours from noon to 9 p.m.

Pinknic has also taken some of its best assets to the next level.In addition to rosé wine and Champagne, last summer’s hit cocktail frosé will also be available to quench your midsummer thirst.

And because Governors Island is all about the views, you can get an even better snap of the Manhattan skyline and Statue of Liberty from a new Pinknic Ferris Wheel.

In addition to picnic baskets, this year’s fest will also have a food court also curated by chef Chris Santos, serving some of the hit dishes from his menus at Beauty & Essex, Vandal and Stanton Social, as well as ice cream, crêpes, popcorn and more. You can also bring your own food, but not alcoholic drinks.
