Makossa Brooklyn Cookout

Saturday, May 25, 2019 | 2-10pm | FREE b4 4PM
It was a very DIY thing at first back in 2010. We had access to a backyard in Williamsburg. We had friends who provided food. We borrowed turntables and janky speakers. Plenty of space to mingle. The very first one felt so right that we did one the following month. And the month after that. The word of mouth was strong. It was that organic growth that dictated where this party would end up going. Time passed. The word got stronger. Lines down the block. Out-of-towners planning their visits to NYC to coincide with the party. Expansions to both Los Angeles and Oakland. A three city tour in 2017. It’s pretty crazy to say the least. And now, ten summers later, we’re somewhere we’d never thought we’d be. In New York event years, that’s almost a lifetime. And we owe it all to you, Brooklyn.
Meet us in Bushwick as we kick off a milestone TENTH consecutive summer and celebrate life, community, and good vibes. As always, early arrival is strongly suggested.

2019 ushers in the tenth consecutive summer for the Makossa Brooklyn Cookout. Holding court as one of the best outdoor summer soirees in Brooklyn, Wonway Posibul of Latin Soul Brothers links up with NYC-based event promotion team Rare Form to bring his famous Makossa sound from San Francisco to NYC to create a bicoastal vibe like none other. Since its birth in the backyard of Williamsburg boutique/gallery Fresthetic in 2010, the monthly cookouts have garnered a loyal following and experienced incredible growth, including the Makossa Los Angeles Cookout, the Makossa Oakland Cookout and a three-city tour in 2017 (Charlotte, Chicago, and Atlanta) sponsored by Miller Lite.
