EVENT PREVIEW: The Great Googa Mooga Returns to Brooklyn!

by Lea Faminiano


It’s back!  Last year’s crazy huge Great Googa Mooga is making its way back to Prospect Park for the second time – but this year it promises to be better.

This year’s festivities kick off on Friday, May 17 with a Kickoff Concert that is separate from the main food event, featuring Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Darkness, and The Flaming Lips (a band that puts on the best live show – more like, spectacle – I’ve ever seen!).

The following Saturday and Sunday are the food-and-drink-packed days, featuring Couch Sessions favorites such as Baohaus, Colicchio & Sons, and much more such as Do or Dine, Eataly, Little Muenster, Luke’s Lobster… the list goes on and on.  Wine and beer tents will also be available for all your drinking needs and will feature local favorites such as Red Hook Winery and Brooklyn Brewery.

General admission is still free, however tickets are limited, so make sure you grab your ticket here starting Wednesday, April 1.  VIP tickets will also be available, and if you purchase a ticket to the Kickoff Concert, you also get a ticket for either Saturday or Sunday at Googa Mooga.  Good luck getting a ticket!
