Event Information:

Established to recognize culinary, art and cultural leaders of Harlem, the Luminary Award remains a highlight of the festival. In our fourth year, we are honored to celebrate two legends:  pioneering fashion designer, Dapper Dan, whose Harlem atelier with Gucci recently opened; and entrepreneur and media personality, Bevy Smith.

Hosted by Harlem EatUp! co-founder and Red Rooster Executive Chef Marcus Samuelsson, the evening reunites former Red Rooster Chef de Cuisine and Top Chef season 15 finalist, Harlemite Chef Adrienne Cheatham, and welcomes restaurateur and Food Network personality, Chef Geoffrey Zakarian. This is how Harlem celebrates their luminaries. Come raise a glass and join the celebration!
