On the evening of Tuesday, June 12th, crowds of people gathered at the concert venue Brooklyn Steel for a showcase of Bushwick’s vibrant culinary scene. The event celebrated the 5th annual Taste of Bushwick, which provided relief for those struggling to keep up with the new bars and restaurants opening everyday in Bushwick. The highly anticipated tasting festival has become one of Brooklyn's premier culinary events.

This year’s tasting has come a long way from its humble beginnings in 2014, which featured 12 vendors and 200 people in attendance. The 5th annual Taste of Bushwick is the biggest yet and has nearly tripled in size since the first, with an attendance of over 1,000 people.

The event prides itself on celebrating the diverse flavors of the neighborhood, with more than four dozen Bushwick restaurants, bars, and shops, all featuring food and people of different backgrounds. Some of Bushwick’s most renowned culinary institutions convened at the outdoor space to rejoice the neighborhood’s active gastronomic life while offering tastes of their food and drink. All proceeds from the event benefit the upcoming 2017-18 season of theater, dance, puppetry, and performance at the neighborhood’s Obie Award-winning, non-profit theater The Bushwick Starr, located at 207 Starr Street.
