Contacted the reporter that covered the Festival last year for the local newspaper.  Said that details for the 2015 Staten Island Fig Festival will be released tomorrow.  Nice!

Very cool, i am interesting in going to this. Is it worth the Verrazano toll ??? haha 

Do the F4F members meet up earlier or later? I know the fest is alot about food and not growing per say.

Who else is going from the board? I really really want to go but rush hour traffic on a weekday will be killer from the island!

You'd have to leave early enough to beat the traffic. LI to SI shouldn't be too bad though. No traffic on the way home.

Looks like I can make it. I've never been so I'm not sure what to expect. I don't think I'll bring any figs, but I'll bring a list of what I can trade/sell. I've got a bunch of air layers that are finishing up. See you tomorrow.

Sorry about that.  It is tonight, 9/15 at 6pm.  

I live 5 minutes from the place and stopped by to check it out.  Sorry if there was any confusion.  Here is a link to the article announcing the Staten Island Fig Festival.

Fun time last night!  Lots of fig talk and lots of trading!  Finally got a variety that was at the top of my list for a long time.  Thank you Ed.  :)

Killmeyer's Old Bavaria Inn was a perfect venue.  Outdoor setting with seating for dinner, plenty of room to walk around and socialize, and a (really big) bar.  Lots of parking.  Staff was fantastic!

It's always great to see old friends and make new ones.  Glad to see everyone there!
