MPBC’s Food Festival 2023 will be at Bethpage State Park

Driving Directions

The picnic will be at the Eagle Pavilion in Bethpage State Park. When entering the main parking lot there are two pavilions, we are at the one up the hill. Park in the main lot and follow the foot path up the hill. 

There will be plenty of food and soft drinks on hand, feel free to BYOB (including alcoholic beverages) if desired.

Remember, there is a $10 parking fee per vehicle.

Alternatives to the $10 parking fee:

  • Car pool with someone you like… or for $10, maybe someone you don’t like.

  • Some libraries have the Empire State Pass that patrons can check out for free. For most libraries, you reserve online and pick up the pass in person. Check your local library for availability as the number of passes are limited.

  • Park at the Bethpage Library or streets adjacent to the park entrance (off of Powell Ave/Plainview Rd) and walk/bike to the venue. (Approx 1.4 miles from the Bethpage Library lot, approx. 1.0 mile from adjacent streets)

  • Park at the S. Park Drive entrance and walk/bike 1.3 miles to the venue. Bethpage Picnic Pavillion | Hike | Strava
