2016 NYC Food Film Festival, October 20 – 23

October 20 – October 23, 2016 ny-food-film-fest

On the fourth Saturday of October, the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival presents a “real roots” showcase of musicians, moonshiners, craftspeople, cooks, motorheads, mule jumpers, horse pullers, log skidders, coon dog racers, antique tractor buffs, slingshot masters, and many more in a celebration of the rich folk heritage of the region. Our festival participants are the real thing, sharing folk traditions that have been a part of their families and/or communities for years. Now in its 43rd year, the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival is a full day of family entertainment. There’s nothing like it in Virginia. The New York Times has called the BRFF “thoroughly authentic.”

Welcome to the 10th Annual NYC Food Film Festival.  We look forward to seeing you October 20th – 23rd. Please visit the individual event pages for detailed information about each events’ food, films and people.
