For those of you who’ve never been before, Feastival is one of the biggest food events of the year. It serves as a fundraiser for FringeArts and brings together some of the biggest names in the city for a one-night-only party full of music, food, booze, food, naked people, food, weird gymnasts, a live auction, food and more food. This is the 5th year of the event, and it’ll be happening on Thursday, September 18, at Penn’s Landing. Tickets are pricey at $250 for general admission and $350 for VIP, but the money is going to a good cause and, on top of that, it’s the kind of scene where eating and drinking away the price of that ticket really isn’t that hard.
So here’s a list of the restaurants that’ll be on hand for this year’s Feastival.
