Westchester Magazine is joining forces with Westchester County Office of Economic Development to give a much-needed boost to restaurants and food trucks with an expanded 2021 Wine & Food Festival this Fall. This marks the County’s first large scale event of 2021 and a return of hundreds of local chefs and restaurants contributing to the massive food festival.
The one-week wine and food extravaganza will take place September 21-26 and serve as a salute to the finest food, exceptional spirits, and award-winning chefs from throughout the county. The festival will require all attendees to be fully vaccinated and show the New York Excelsior Pass or vaccination card & ID upon entry.
“Westchester has come back stronger than ever from the pandemic, so this is our salute to all chefs and restaurants who persevered and found ways to stay open during the pandemic,” said Sam Wender, publisher of Westchester Magazine. “We look forward to celebrating all our favorite dining establishments this Fall.”
Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “We are thrilled to welcome back Westchester Magazine’s Wine and Food Festival this year, and what better place to kick off the celebration than at Party on the Pier at Rye Playland. Our County’s eateries struggled through the pandemic, and we want this week-long festival to symbolize the return of the finest foods, spirits, and award-winning establishments that Westchester County has to offer.”
Bridget Gibbons, Director of the Westchester County Office of Economic Development said: “This year’s Wine & Food Festival is a very positive sign the County is bouncing back. We welcome our neighbors and new visitors to see the beauty of Playland, the County’s historic gem, while sampling new flavors including from our food trucks, an industry on the rise of re-emerging from this pandemic, like so many other local businesses.”
