New Dates Announced for 2020 Wine & Food Festival!

Given Governor Cuomo’s latest projections on the number of months that will require social distancing to flatten the COVID-19 curve in Westchester, it is with great reluctance, but out of an abundance of caution, to postpone the 10thAnnual Wine & Food Festival from the week of June 8th – 14th to the week of September 22nd-27th.

All ticket purchases for the original June dates will be honored for the rescheduled dates.

For any questions or concerns, please email marketing@westchestermagazine.com.

Until then, we wish you good health and look forward to celebrating the resilience of Westchester’s great culinary and hospitality community in September.
