“Whenever we can we try to find a way to give back and have fun at the same time. It is great to interact with the people here,” stated Chef Craig Koketsu of Quality Eats while serving his delicious Grilled Nueske’s Bacon with peanut butter and jalapeno jelly.

NYCWFF is considered the largest food and wine festival in New York City. With more than 80 events, we are widely recognized for our 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.

To date NYCWFF has raised $11.5 million to help fight hunger. All net proceeds benefit the No Kid Hungry® campaign and Food Bank For New York City.

We take great pride in offering 47,000 passionate gourmands and aficionados something for every palate and budget. 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.

The festival 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.
