Kids Food Festival

The James Beard Foundation is a proud partner of the Kids Food Festival, which takes place this Saturday and Sunday at New York City’s Bryant Park. Presented by the Creative Kitchen, the weekend will be full of delicious activities dedicated to educating families about making balanced food choices that foster lifelong wholesome eating. Little epicures and their parents can attend hands-on cooking classes in the James Beard Foundation Future Foodies Pavilion, where renowned chefs like Carla Hall, Jehangir Mehta, and Candice Kumai will share their recipes, skills, and love for all things culinary. Our own Izabela Wojcik and Victoria Jordan will host a class and demonstrate the recipe for James Beard’s Orange and Almond Cake Parfait.

The festival also includes free activities like the Balanced Plate Scavenger Hunt, where kids bounce between exhibitors and activities to sample tasty snacks while learning the importance of balanced food choices. Families can enjoy live music and entertainment, cooking demonstrations, fitness workshops, food sampling, giveaways, and more!

General admission to the festival is free; tickets to cooking classes in the James Beard Foundation Future Foodies Pavilion can be purchased for $25. (One ticket covers admission for one child and an accompanying adult.) The Kids Food Festival is excited to support the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a national non-profit fighting childhood obesity.
