Despite brisk weather sweeping New York, foodies went outside to be fed by top chefs. Clear span tenting provided shelter and the kept focus on the food.
The roof-top of Pier 92 offers an elevated view of the Hudson River along Westside Highway in Manhattan at 52nd Street. Several events took place there over the course of four days: Thursday October 15th through Sunday October 18th. Being on the river wind is always a consideration, especially as the weather turns colder.
By providing the clear span tenting solutions Eventstar helped New Yorkers (and visitors) wine and dine in style for a good cause! We were excited to be back for the eighth annual Food Network & Cooking Channel NYC Food & Wine presented by FOOD & WINE. Proceeds raised by the events went to benefit the Food Bank For New York City and No Kid Hungry. A great time was had by all, especially with the knowledge that consuming all that delicious gourmet food and wine has the consequence of helping children in need from going hungry.
Events on Pier 92 were hosted by some of the biggest names in celebrity chefs. These included: Giadia De Laurentiis’ “Italian Feast,” Rachel Ray’s “Blue Moon Burger Bash,” Mario Batali’s “Jets + Chefs: The Ultimate Tailgate” (with special co-host Joe Namath), Emeril Lagasse’s “The Art of Tiki: A Cocktail Showdown,” and Michael Symon’s “Meatopia.”
The NYC Wine and Food Festival is an event that we have been excited to be a part of for several years in a row now. We provide two large signature Eventstar clear span tents to cover a large portion of the venue.
In the middle of the two tents was a performance space that acted as the focal point for the event. This intimate space allowed fans to get a close-up view of their favorite celebrity chefs. The two tents were connected to provide seamless passage from one to the other.
The venue safely held heavy professional lighting and sound systems to support the entertainment productions. There were several DJ’s who kept the vibe going throughout the events.
There were clear wall panels to protect from the wind but let in the daylight. These also allowed the chefs and restaurateurs go back and forth from their food stations to their serving stalls.
Along with the entertainment venue, serving stalls, and sponsor stalls there were three open bars and sections of tables and chairs. This allowed guests to relax, eat, drink, and soak up the atmosphere.
