Fall is in the air and what better way to celebrate the spirit of New York City than with a food extravaganza! On Saturday, October 16th (from 12 p.m.–3 p.m. at Piers 16 and 17) Taste of the Seaport returns for the 11th year of food, fun, and fundraising. Proceeds from the festival will benefit PS 343 Peck Slip School and PS 397 Spruce Street School arts and enrichment programs. Downtown’s premier food festival brings together over 30 of the best restaurants in Lower Manhattan and showcases an array of local vendors, artisans and entertainers.
Food lovers are invited to explore a variety of culinary options available in the Seaport and Financial District with delicious dishes from Eataly Downtown, Brooklyn Chop House, Industry Kitchen, Watermark Bar, Beatnic (formerly by CHLOE), Fresh Salt, Stout FiDi, Route 66 Smokehouse, and Mac Daddy’s, to name a few.
For the first time, Taste of the Seaport will have a demonstration stage where guests can learn the Art of Pizza Making from Keste or watch an Interactive Potion Mixology Demonstration by The Cauldron NYC. There will be live music in addition to family-friendly activities at the festival’s KidsZone. The Pier Bar will also be open throughout the day, offering a selection of beer, wine, and soda for purchase.

VIP tables will also be available for an additional fee, which will provide access to an exclusive seating area complete with table service and complimentary beer, wine and soda.
