Much to the delight of food-obsessed urbanites, the NEW YORK CITY WINE & FOOD FESTIVAL returns for its 10th anniversary edition from October 12 – 15, 2017.
With more than 70 events taking place at locations across the city, it’s no exaggeration to call it the culinary extravaganza of the year.
Fan favorites include tastings, intimate dinners, seminars, and late-night parties.
All the eating and drinking is for a great cause, with 100% of the net proceeds benefiting the hunger-relief organizations Food Bank For New York City and No Kid Hungry®. To date, NYCWFF has raised more than $10 million to support the fight to end hunger.
In honor of the NYCWFF’s 10th anniversary, we’ve highlighted 10 mouth-watering events for you to consider. Tickets are selling fast, so purchase soon. Happy eating!
