Catskills Wine & Food Festival: Celeb Chefs, Hot Music, and Local Food & Drink
Where will you be October 6-7? Our bet: the Catskills Wine & Food Festival (CWFF). The event is slated to be a one-of-kind experience where guests will be treated to intimate cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs as well as live music, private tastings, a smorgasbord of good eats, and an expansive selection of beer, wine, and cider. Guests can rent on-site cabins that sleep up to 18 people or stay overnight on the event grounds.
A limited number of presale tickets will be available online on April 18 and those ticket prices will increase in May. The lineup of celebrity chefs includes: Jordan Andino of Flip Sigi, Iron Chef judge, Donatella Arpaia of Prova Pizzabar, culinary producer, Sarah Blair, Josh Capon of Bowery Meat Company and Lure Fishbar, Michael Chernow of The Meatball Shop and Seamore’s, Gail Simmons of BRAVO's Top Chef, Alex Guarnaschelli of Butter, Amirah Kassem of Flour Shop, The Next Great Baker judge, Bobbie Lloyd of Magnolia Bakery. And musical perfomances will include: Lord Huron, Moon Taxi, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Drake White and the Big Fire, Ripe, Escort, Dwayne Gretzky, The Dip, and Rebecca Perl.
Like no other food, wine, and music festivals, CWFF will allow attendees to get up-close to the action—whether that’s a musical performance or the opportunity to taste homemade creations cooked “live” by some of the nation’s most acclaimed chefs. General admission two-day passes include food and wine tastings, access to cooking demonstrations and live music, access to activities throughout the campground, access to the Sunday Market--a culinary curation of the Catkills and beyond--and shuttles to and from select hotels in the area.
All-access two-day VIP passes include all the general admission events, plus access to VIP Village, where celebrity chefs will be holding Meet & Greets and VIP guests can enjoy intimate dining experiences curated by CWFF celebrity chefs, a Saturday evening VIP dinner and a Sunday VIP brunch (all-inclusive), various open bar events, and an exclusive swag bag.
