About Catskill Cuisine

The Sullivan Catskills Visitors Association in partnership with Bethel Woods Center for the Arts presents a day-long festival celebrating the cuisine of the Catskills and beyond.

Showcasing the resurgence and popularity of the Catskills, curators will expose visitors to the beauty of the Sullivan Catskills and its distinct regional cuisine. The destination’s natural rivers, micro-organic farms and forests serve as endless inspiration for the exploding culinary scene, driven by a diverse wealth of local, sustainably sourced products, fresh-from-the-farm produce, and a range of quality craft beverages which are made from the purest Catskill water.

Catskill Cuisine takes inspiration from local fare, farmers, and restaurants, featuring chefs and producers participating in tastings, demonstrations, and hands-on experiences to immerse visitors in the county. It will bring visitors, music, and cuisine together, while allowing local culinary experts to shine and be inspired by other accomplished American chefs.
