30 Apr Bigger and busier, weekly bash back for round two
Brooklyn transplant Josh Sampson has big plans for the weekly shindig he puts on during the summer on a vacant lot in Curtis Park.
The Big Wonderful, a festival that combines a beer garden with food trucks and live music on Saturday afternoons, will return for its second year in May with triple the number of vendors. And it’s opening two months earlier than last year’s maiden voyage.
“It’s a small-business incubator,” Sampson said. “It’s a low-cost way to try out ideas and a weekly canvas to allow small businesses a chance to practice their skills. It’s a great education piece.”
