More than forty eateries from North Brooklyn will join together in East River State Park for a food festival next month.
The event, known as TASTE Williamsburg Greenpoint, will take place on Sep 17 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Each participating restaurant will offer a sample taste of a signature dish or drink.
For $35, attendees will receive four tastes and two drinks; for $60, eight tastes and four drinks. Tickets, as well as the list of eateries to be represented, are available for purchase at www.tastewg.com.
The festival, now in its 8th year, will also feature music, dancing, art and other entertainment. Attendees must be over 21, although small children are allowed.
Proceeds raised from the festival will go toward revamping the former FDNY Engine Co. 212 building at 134 Wythe Avenue. The vacant firehouse is in the process of being converted into a community/arts center.
