Catskills Wine & Food Festival just announced the initial lineup for their inaugural event, going down in the Catskill Mountains in Bloomingburg, NY on October 6 – 7, 2018. The two-day music and culinary experience will include cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs as well as live music, private tastings, a smorgasbord of good eats, and an impressive selection of beer, wine, and cider, all carefully curated. The initial music lineup impressively features Lord Huron, Moon Taxi, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Drake White and the Big Fire, Ripe, Escort, The Dip, and Rebecca Perl. Saturday’s headliner is TBA.

Catskills Wine & Food Festival is unlike other food, wine, and music festivals. The event invites guests to get up-close to the action—whether that’s a musical performance or a cooking demonstration–and provides a unique opportunity to taste homemade creations cooked “live” by some of the nation’s most acclaimed chefs. Because of this, tickets are limited and will go fast.

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 Catskills 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.

For the full experience, guests can rent on-site cabins that sleep up to 18 people and stay overnight on the magnificent event grounds, nestled in the beautiful mountains of upstate New York.

A limited number of presale tickets will go on sale April 18th at 11:00 am ET, and are only available here. Ticket prices will increase in May.

The lineup of celebrity chefs includes:
• Jordan Andino (Flip Sigi and TV personality)
• Donatella Arpaia (Prova Pizzabar and Iron Chef judge)
• Sarah Blair (Culinary Producer)
• Josh Capon (Bowery Meat Company, Lure Fishbar, and more)
• Michael Chernow (The Meatball Shop and Seamore’s)
• Gail Simmons (BRAVO’s Top Chef)
• Alex Guarnaschelli (Butter)

According to the event, additional chef attendees and musical acts, including Saturday’s headliner, will be announced on an ongoing basis. Head to the festival website for more information.
