Check Out the New York City Food and Wine Festival

Nothing will get you more in the mood of fall than attending a great fall festival. If you are in the New York area or are planning a visit, one festival not to miss is the New York City Food and Wine Festival. This event is sponsored by the Food Network, so you know it is going to be good!

The event is held from October 11th to the 14th, and this is the 5th year for this festival. The festival is great fun but it is also for a good cause. So far, they have raised $5 million dollars for the Food Bank of New York, which works hard to help end hunger. You cannot only have a wonderful time, but also do something productive for the world!

There will be plenty to eat and drink and plenty of activities to enjoy. You will get to meet winemakers, watch live demonstrations from big name chefs, and sample some fine spirits. Events that are can’t-miss include the cutie cook Rachael Ray and her “burger bash”, Giada Laurentiis’ “meatball madness”, the roast (as in friends poking fun, not the oven kind) of Anthony Bourdain, shake and bake with Whoopi Goldberg, and many grand tastings.

While mostly an event for an adult palate, there is even a special event just for the young chefs among us called “Fun and Fit in the City”, which will be hosted by the lovable Guy Fieri. Young ones will learn all sorts of interesting things about the foods they eat and will even get to try their hand at cooking a meal.

There will be so much to see and do that it may be hard to choose which events you want to attend individually. If you want to make it easy, you can buy a “pass” for your favorite events. For example, there is the “Food Network Addict” pass, which will get you into the “meatball madness” event, as well as the “tacos and tequila” event, which is hosted by Bobby Flay and more. Other passes include the “Food and Wine” pass, the “Party Animal” pass, the “Grand Tasting Weekend” pass and more.

This is sure to be the foodie event of the season and bound to make for one memorable autumn! Book your food and wine tickets today.
