The New York Times announced today that it will bring back its Food Festival for the first time since 2019, on Oct. 8 at Damrosch Park (located at Lincoln Center) in New York City. The Festival will bring together some of the biggest names across the culinary industry, beside New York Times Food and Cooking editor Emily Weinstein, assistant managing editor Sam Sifton and the wider Food and Cooking teams.
“We’re eager to bring our readers and journalists back together this fall for a long-awaited celebration of food,” said Emily Weinstein, The Times’ Food and Cooking editor. “The joy of cooking has remained a constant for many of us through the past few years, and the New York Times Cooking community has only grown in size and passion. This festival is a chance for us to not only reunite with our readers in person, but to connect them with each other and some of their favorite culinary leaders — the ones who guide their daily food choices, from the restaurants they dine at to the recipes they cook.”
“Following the success of our first Food Festival, we’re confident that the Food and Cooking teams will put on something equally special this year,” said Jimmy Saunders, executive director, audio and events. “We’re excited to continue to bring The Times’ Food and Cooking stories to life — and to bring together those who love to cook and love to eat for a full day of discovery and deliciousness.”
The Festival will run from 11 a.m.–7 p.m., with interactive programming throughout the day touching all aspects of sourcing, cooking and eating. Tickets will provide access to:

Food, beverage and market offerings will be available for purchase. Profits raised from Natasha Pickowicz’s Bake Sale, along with all leftover food from the Festival, will be donated to City Harvest, working to feed the nearly 1.2 million New Yorkers who are experiencing food insecurity.
