About Latke Festival

One of New York City's most unique and delicious holiday tasting events, the Latke Festival is a charity event organized by Great Performances Catering that celebrates the best and most creative potato pancakes in our city. At the 9th Annual Latke Festival on December 18th, 2017, hundreds of guests joined a Panel of Celebrity Judges to ring in the holidays, enjoy amazing food and drink and vote for the Best Latkes in NYC!

All net proceeds benefited The Sylvia Center, a nonprofit dedicated to teaching healthy eating habits to children and their families, with programs in New York City and at Katchkie Farm in Kinderhook, NY.

2018 will mark the 10th anniversary of our beloved latke tasting event and friendly competition. For its third year in a row, the 10th Annual Latke Festival will be held at the stunning Brooklyn Museum and is already on track to be our biggest celebration of latkes yet.

Stay tuned for release dates of limited Early Bird, General Admissions and VIP Tickets.

Latke Festival benefits The Sylvia Center

All net proceeds from Latke Festival go to The Sylvia Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that focuses on teaching cooking in underserved communities, inspiring children, teens and families to eat well through hands-on experiences on the farm and in the kitchen. Proceeds 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 ratio 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.
