Latke Festival

Latke Festival is a large annual tasting event dedicated to celebrating the best latkes and creative interpretations of a potato pancake in New York City. In its ninth year, we'll be celebrating at the Brooklyn Museum! Join us and our panel of celebrity judges on December 18th to ring in the holidays, enjoy amazing food and drink, and vote for the Best Latke in NYC!

Net proceeds will benefit The Sylvia Center, a nonprofit dedicated to addressing childhood obesity and food-related diseases through hands-on programs in the kitchen and on the farm.

The Sylvia Center


The Sylvia Center


The Latke Festival benefits The Sylvia Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that addresses the growing epidemic of childhood obesity and diet-related diseases by inspiring children, teens and families to eat well through hands-on experiences on the farm and in the kitchen. All net proceeds will help fund the New York City programs that teach young people from NYCHA Community Housing Centers basic cooking skills and the principles of healthy eating. Led by trained chef instructors, classes have a student-to-teacher ration of 4:1 and immerse students in experiences with fresh, whole foods. This year our goal is to sponsor over 1500 students to the NYC program.
