Harlem EatUp! Festival
Welcome to the 3rd annual Harlem EatUp! Festival, a four-day festival offering an exciting sampling of Harlem's sights, flavors and sounds, from artists of the kitchen, canvas, stage and streets. Enjoy Dine In Harlem, Eat Up's signature one-night-only multi-room dinner party experience, featuring Harlem's hottest restaurants and chefs hosting some of the biggest national culinary stars in their kitchens. Get your eat on as you spend the day Uptown at The Harlem Stroll, where food, art and culture will converge all in the backdrop of one of the neighborhood's most beautiful parks. Watch Harlem and national top chef cooking demos on the EatUp! Main Stage. It's a celebration of culture and good eats you won't want to miss!
As part of its commitment to Harlem, the Festival will donate net proceeds to impactful Harlem charities. These donations will be disbursed by the newly formed Harlem EatUp! Foundation, whose mission is to strengthen community by supporting the people, cultures and non-profit organizations that empower Harlem.
Net proceeds from the ticket sales for Harlem EatUp! will benefit two non-profit organizations that have a direct impact on the Harlem Community: Citymeals-on-Wheels and Harlem Park to Park.
Citymeals on Wheels (citymeals.org) provides a continuous lifeline of nourishing meals and vital companionship to New York City’s homebound elderly. Working in partnership with community-based organizations and senior centers, Citymeals prepares and delivers over 2 million weekend, holiday and emergency meals for more than 18,000 of our frail aged neighbors each year. Last year, over 15,000 individuals volunteered nearly 72,000 hours of their time.
Since its founding in 1981, Citymeals has relied on the generosity of its Board of Directors, the City of New York, sponsors and other designated gifts to cover administrative costs. This ensures that 100% of all public donations will be used entirely for the preparation and delivery of meals.
Harlem Park to Park (HP2P) is a neighborhood development organization of entrepreneurs committed to cultural preservation, small business and community development in Central Harlem, NYC’s premiere cultural, dining, shopping, lifestyle and nightlife hub north of 110th Street. Formed in September 2009, HP2P’s membership is comprised of 130+ premiere businesses located within the geographic area of Central Park North to 144th street and Morningside Park to Marcus Garvey Park. Our mission is to encourage commerce that successfully sustains small businesses; promotes the community and culture of the Village of Harlem and celebrates the neighborhood’s historic CHARM.
