A culinary celebration

On October 13th to 16th, the festival will celebrate its 15th year with more than 80 events and over 400 chefs from around the world. A variety of tastings, seminars, intimate dinners and late-night parties will take place at locations across the city with 100 percent of the net proceeds supporting NYCWFF’s mission to Eat Drink Feed NYC.

“This year’s event offers a variety of opportunities for fans and the industry to come together and celebrate,” noted Festival Founder & Director Lee Brian Schrager. There will be a plethora of unique, one-night-only collaborative meals hosted by some of the world’s most critically acclaimed chefs and paired with a variety of high-end wines and spirits from the Festival’s exclusive provider, Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits.

Celebrated chefs will take to the stage in front of a live audience at the festival’s 135,000 square-foot culinary playground at Hudson River Park’s Pier 76.

Welcoming back long-time partners, Food Network and Capital One, along with several new sponsors, the NYCWFF and its Florida sister festival, SOBEWFF, raise millions of dollars to benefit their charitable partners and draw attention to the vibrant dining cultures of their host cities.
