Catskill Cuisine Festival at Bethel Woods
Calling all foodies! We are so excited to share the news about the upcoming Catskill Cuisine Festival, an immersive culinary event for the whole family on May 13th.
Held at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts (the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock festival), families can enjoy the beauty of the region with shopping, food, book signings, hands-on demos, music, family-friendly entertainment, and demos from celebrity chefs such as Alton Brown, Scott Conant, Alex Guarnaschelli, Marcus Samuelsson, and Geoffrey Zakarian. Hosted by Sullivan Catskills Visitors Association and Bethel Woods Center the event marks a fun fusion of food to highlight the gorgeous area with its scenic backdrop.
Coined “Catskills Cuisine,” the event takes inspiration from local fare, farmers, and restaurants, featuring 20-25 chefs participating in tastings, demonstrations and hands-on experiences to immerse visitors in the county.
