When was the last time that eating and drinking meant you were helping fight hunger? It may sound contradictory, but it isn’t: the New York City Wine & Food Festival (NYCFFW) does exactly that. From October 12 to 15, New York City will be a foodie’s paradise where visitors will taste top-notch food, wine and spirits in events hosted by celebrity chefs and culinary personalities!
How does it work? The NYCFFW brings together the stars of the culinary industry to raise money for two charities: Food Bank For New York City and No Kid Hungry. This year’s NYCFFW is special because it’s celebrating its 10th anniversary. As a result, over 80 events in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Harlem will open their doors to world-renowned chefs, independent winemakers and spirits producers, food industry professionals, sponsors and partners. The events include signature rooftop parties, dining experiences, wine and food tastings, cocktail parties and family events.
For those of you wanting to take your New York City experience to the next level, don’t think twice about it! This festival happens only once a year and this year’s events are some of the best ones yet. To pique your interest, take a look at some of this year’s highlights:
