New York City Wine & Food Festival

October 17th-20th 2013

Different events all over NYC

The sixth annual Festival takes place October 17-20, 2013. It is the only Festival in New York to bring together both legendary culinary icons from around the world and America’s favorite television chefs. The New York City Festival benefits the hunger-relief programs of Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign. Having raised over $6 million to date, 100% of the net proceeds from the Festival go directly to these community-based organizations. Eat. Drink. End Hunger. There are so many great events that will be held during NYCWFF, I can not list them all. Check out the website and decide which events you would like to attend: http://www.nycwff.org/
