To Do: Taste of Fall Cooking Competition

Sample yummy eats while you support a good cause.

After cooking all 10 of our fall-inspired pumpkin recipes (you’re planning on it, right?), you’ll deserve a break from the kitchen. On Sunday, October 14th, head to the Smith Memorial Playground & Playplace in East Fairmount Park for the third annual Taste of Fall Cooking Competition and Exhibition, which will feature food tastings from local restaurants, items for sale from local farms, specialty food vendors, beer and wine tastings, cooking demonstrations and live music. A kids’ tent will feature activities such as face painting, contests and yoga for children.

Proceeds will support the Junior League’s Apple a Day program, a community initiative with the goal of creating a positive impact on the health and wellness of adults and children in the Philadelphia area. The Junior League of Philadelphia is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. For more information, click here. Visit the JLP website to purchase tickets.

$40, October 14, 1 to 4 p.m., Smith Memorial Playground & Playplace, N. 33rd St & Oxford St, Philadelphia.
