Philadelphia Feastival 2012

Feastival returned this year more decadent than ever! The chefs from some of the most acclaimed restaurants in the city pulled out all the stops with luxurious menu ingredients (foie gras being a star ingredient); and crowds were entertained by high flying acrobatics while sipping on drinks mixed by some of the best bars in town. A very memorable evening that was a feast for the senses.

A steady stream of contemporary Asian cuisine concocted by executive chef Michael Schulson was served at the Feastival preview party at Sampan in Midtown Village. Never haven’t eaten there before I left very impressed with the excellent food the cooks were dishing out to party-goers. We got to try a lot of items that are available (at really reasonable prices) on their Happy Hour menu; Edamame Dumplings, Korean BBQ Beef Satay, Kim Chee Fried Rice, Crispy Brussel Sprouts, among others. I definitely recommend checking it out. 

Feastival is a benefit party for the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe, it will take place on September 12th. Last year’s event was absolutely incredible (see my photos: Feastival: A Feast For The Senses). You can purchase tickets here.

I really recommend this event because you get to eat and drink from some of the best, and most lauded restaurants and bars in Philadelphia, all the while supporting a great cause; the arts in Philly. If you splurge on one dining out experience, this would be a good one to pick. Frankly I’ve been looking forward to this event since last year’s ended!

Had a great time photographing Feastival. It was a fundraising event for the live arts in Philadelphia. 60+ of the city’s best restaurants and bars were there serving some really spectacular drinks and food. Read the write-up and get more details on the delicious food and drinks that were served by Philly’s finest at the link.

This is one of the best events that I’ve been to all year! It was an opportunity to taste some of the best food in the city all under one roof. I love all the magic and wonder the acrobats and performers brought to it. I’m not exaggerating with the feast for the senses tagline.

Party on the waterfront, Feastival took place at Pier 9 next to the Race St Pier. Awesome location! There are plans to continue developing Pier 9 to host more events.
