One of the biggest events that happens in Manhattan during the fall season is of course The New York City Wine & Food Festival, starting about a month away on October 13th. The annual event hosts some of the biggest names in food, with a variety of events that would appeal to even the stingiest of eaters. This year, there are a ton of amazing new events, returning favorites, and a huge announcement as they are expanding to a brand new area that we happen to know and love.
With stars in the industry like Robert Irvine and Rachael Ray, or entertainment icons like Whoopi Goldberg and Neil Patrick Harris, this year’s NYCWFF might be the biggest yet! Take a look at what is in store in terms of something new, something old, and their first ever trip to Brooklyn!
