NYC Wine & Food Festival

If you needed yet another reason to explore what lies beyond the apartments for rent in New York City, how about a food and wine festival to get you out into the urban air? The New York City Wine & Food Festival is fast approaching, and from October 10th through October 13th, you'll be able to enjoy one of the largest events in the Big Apple (and one that's thrown with a worthy cause behind it). For more than a decade, this festival has been making a difference (and delighting attendees with culinary brilliance). This year will be no less, so if you're thinking about heading out there to experience it all for yourself, read up on some of these details before you go.

What's Going Down at NYCWFF This Year?

There are the obvious elements of a food festival, of course. NYCWFF will feature plenty of chances to eat and drink to your heart's delight, and there's no shame if that's the main draw of the festival for you. Just checking out the intimate dinner series, you can see that some of the finest chefs and food personalities the world knows will be a part of the festival, and you'll likely revel in attending their specialty dinners.

There's more to explore during the festival, though, like the pier parties and culinary demonstrations. You'll have the chance to see more notable names in the world of food, live it up with other excited New Yorkers, and perhaps even gain some cooking knowledge that you can take home and try for yourself.

Then there are new events making their way to the NYCWFF lineup, like the Ultimate Oktoberfest (hosted by Andrew Zimmern). You'll get to down giant mugs of beer and pair them up with some salty treats while celebrating this most German of festivals, New York Style. All the while, fantastic music and lively festivities will surround you, making for the perfect celebratory atmosphere. You can check out more of the new events that are planned right on the NYCWFF website.

And don't forget, all the fun is for a worthy cause. To date, NYCWFF has raised more than $12.5 million to fight hunger across America. This year, all the net proceeds from the event will be going to support the Food Bank for New York and No Kid Hungry campaigns, both dedicated to ensuring children have enough to eat. If you needed any more reason to check out this upcoming festival, you've surely got it, so be sure to buy those tickets and show your support for a noble goal.
