The Great Chefs event — in which Marc Vetri brings together his culinary BFFs from across the country to raise funds to fight childhood cancer — has undergone a bit of a revamp.

For its 13th year, Great Chefs will still take place at Urban Outfitters’ headquarters at the Navy Yard. But now, it’s now a family-friendly event, taking place from 12:30 p.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 9th. Also new? A beer garden section featuring local breweries, plus a kids’ area with children-friendly fun and games. Funds raised will go to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Philly chefs serving bites this year include local heavy hitters like Greg Vernick, Michael Solomonov, Jose Garces, plus big names from across the country like Chris Consentino of San Francisco’s Cockscomb, Chris Bianco of Pizzeria Bianco and Tratto in Phoenix, Vinny Dotolo and John Shook of Animal in Los Angeles, and Alex Guarnaschelli of New York’s Butter. Check out the full list of participating chefs here.

Tickets to Great Chefs are $195 per person — kids 12 and under get in free — and you can get yours here.
