YCWFF is considered the largest food and wine festival in New York City! With more than 100 events, we are widely recognized for tastings in celebration of America’s favorite foods, intimate dinners with world-renowned chefs, late night parties, hands-on classes, educational seminars, coveted wine tastings and more. We take great pride in offering 50,000 passionate gourmands and aficionados something for every palate and budget. Our guests join us year after year to sip, swirl and savor world-class cuisine, wine and spirits served up by the industry’s finest and America’s most beloved television chefs all in support of the fight to end hunger.
Headed into its 10th year, NYCWFF began as a one-night event, SWEET, in the fall of 2007. In 2008, Festival Founder and Director, Lee Brian Schrager (SVP Communications & Corporate Social Responsibility at Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits) launched the inaugural NYCWFF that has quickly grown to mirror its sister Festival, the Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival. Join us again for our 10th anniversary on October 12 – 15, 2017 where we’ll once again bring together the world’s greatest talent to educate your palates and entertain you in high style!
