Second Annual FEASTIVAL Brings Together Top Chefs

The now annual FEASTIVAL will again bring together top Philadelphia chefs as the culinary arts raise fund for Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe.

The event, building on the success of last year’s gala will be held on Wednesday, September 14th, 2011. This year the event will be held at Pier 9, located at 121 N. Columbus Boulevard. More than seven hundred attendees are expected to attend the tasty cultural event.

FEASTIVAL will once again be co-hosted by Stephen Starr, Michael Solomonov and Audrey Claire Taichman. This year’s event will honor Former Governor Edward Rendell for his role in Philadelphia’s cultural community.

“FEASTIVAL celebrates both our artistic and culinary scenes – two great economic engines that push Philadelphia forward,” said Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe Board President Richard Vague. This year’s FEASTIVAL will feature a culinary feast from the city’s top chefs, live performances by Live Arts artists, and a silent and live auction. All proceeds will benefit the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and Philly Fringe.
