Audi Festival 2018

Mark your calendars because Thursday, September 27th from 6:00 – 10:00 pm is the party of the year! Audi FEASTIVAL has been called the culinary event of the year, not to be missed if you’re a lover of food in Philadelphia. This premier annual fundraiser benefits the FringeArts, celebrating both our city’s artistic and culinary scenes at one exclusive, unforgettable evening on the Delaware Waterfront. Tickets are still available and can be purchased through Use PROMO CODE: YEAR9 to receive 20% off tickets through 9/21 in honor of FEASTIVAL’s 9th year running.

This year FEASTIVAL has got a unique twist, Philly Flavors. Perfectly Paired. is the theme. Some of the greatest chefs this city has to offer will be paired up to represent a neighborhood of the city which will inspire their cuisine. Guests will be able to enjoy exclusive dishes available for one night only! Audi FEASTIVAL is presented by title sponsor Audi and co-hosts Nicholas Elmi (Laurel, ITV, and Royal Boucherie), Stephen Starr (STARR Restaurants), Michael Solomonov (Zahav, Federal Donuts, Dizengoff, Abe Fisher, Rooster Soup Company), and Audrey Claire Taichman (COOK).

The sheer amount of world-class local restaurants in attendance is impressive enough to draw crowds. We are so excited to see many of our favorites — as well as being able to try new dishes created by these unique chef pairings. The event space alone is reason to check out FESTIVAL. FringeArts acrobats and live artists will fill the indoor and outdoor space around the La Peg Brasserie building, with beautiful views from the Race Street Pier on Columbus Boulevard, under the Ben Franklin Bridge. 

What might be the best part of this event is that proceeds from FEASTIVAL support FringeArts and the Philadelphia Fringe Festival. FringeArts presents the world’s most cutting-edge, high-quality artists, amplifying the vibrancy of Philadelphia as a cultural destination and an unparalleled place to live, work, and visit. FringeArts is Philadelphia’s home for contemporary performance, presenting progressive, world-class art that stretches the imagination and boldly defies expectation. As the city’s lead experimenter in the arts, FringeArts exposes audiences to unpredictable dance, theater and music performances by accomplished and emerging innovators who are pushing the boundaries of art-making and redefining the artistic landscape worldwide.
