NYC Wiknic – Brooklyn, New York (June 22)
The 2013 Great American Wiknic will be held on Sat, June 22 (and nearby dates), with a local rain date generally the following day.
With grassroots organizing help from local Wikipedia:Meetup groups and the Wikimedians Active in Local Regions of the United States (WALRUS) committee.
The first national Wiknic was held in June 2011, and 16 cities took part with Wiknics large and small. June 2012 was a success as well, and now third time’s a charm with Wiknic 3.0 June 2013. The Wiknic concept was modeled on the Wikipedia 10 celebrations and on the past success of Wiknics in New York City, and has inspired other large-scale coordinated events like Wikipedia Loves Libraries and Wiki Loves Monuments in the United States.
