Harlem EatUp! May 19 – 22 Serves Community

Mark

Welcome to the second annual Harlem EatUp! Festival. This four-day festival invites you to see and taste all Harlem has to offer from the artists of the kitchen, the canvas, the stage and the streets. Come Dine In Harlem! for a one-night-only multi-room dinner party for the ages, hit The Stroll, where Harlem’s food, art and culture will converge or observe culinary masters at the EatUp! Main Stage.  With all of this and more, you need to be in here!
When friends and founders of the Harlem EatUp! Festival, executive chef, restaurateur and Harlemite Marcus Samuelsson and veteran event marketer, Herb Karlitz, put their heads together about celebrating Harlem they couldn’t be stopped. Three months later, together with the sage insight and support of Harlem business tastemakers and residents, they would announce Harlem EatUp! to the world!
As part of its mission and dedication to Harlem, the Festival will donate proceeds from ticket sales to Harlem Park to Park and Citymeals-on-Wheels. Respectively, both organizations continue to provide a positive and direct impact on the community through small business support and feeding Harlem’s home bound elderly.
Morningside Park
@112th Street & Manhattan Ave
May 21st and May 22nd
Check out culinary demos on the EatUp! Main Stage presented by Macy’s on the LG Stage, featuring both Harlem and celebrity chefs. Watch Emeril Lagasse, Marcus Samuelsson, Carla Hall, Joseph “JJ” Johnson, and more as they entertain, share new recipes and tips of the trade. Demos only, no tasting.
We love DJ Stormin’  Norman!  To keep the party going, live music will be provided by Harlem resident  DJ Stormin’ Norman!
