TASTE

TASTE Williamsburg/Greenpoint Now On Sale!

TASTE is back for its 10th anniversary! The TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint Festival will take place on Sunday, September 15 from 1–4 PM at East River State Park (90 Kent Ave) in Williamsburg.

TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint is a celebration of North Brooklyn’s local flavor, benefitting the Firehouse North Brooklyn Community Center. Now in its 10th year (!), the block party style tasting event will return to the scenic Williamsburg waterfront, bringing the neighborhood’s top restaurants, bars and independent merchants together with over 2,000 attendees to eat and drink for a great cause.

Confirmed restaurant and bar participants to date include Tacocina, Leuca, Barano, Lighthouse, Zona Rosa, Baba’s Pierogies and more, with more to be announced in the coming weeks.

Ticket sales will begin today via Eventbrite, here. Early bird tickets will start at $50 for general admission (8 food ‘tastes’ and all you can drink beverages), and VIP tickets start at $100 for all you can eat and drink, with early access to the event, and a gifting lounge with seating.

Proceeds from the event will once again go to benefit the Firehouse North Brooklyn Community Center, located in the former Engine 212 Firehouse at 134 Wythe Avenue, which is working to re-open as a crucial hub for the local community. After several years of successful fundraising towards the $2.8M goal, the project is nearly fully funded, with just $250,000 to go, and entering into the construction phase. Eat up while supporting a good cause!
