NYC is Falling for Fall Festivals

The leaves are changing, the weather is brisk and there is a sudden resurgence of cashmere sweaters. It is safe to say it is once again fall in the city and with fall comes a slue of festivals.

1) Dumbo Arts Festival is an annual gathering of artists from around the NYC area for a weekend of live performances, visual arts presentations and activities for the whole family. With hands-on instillations and free events throughout the weekend on the 27 the Dumbo Arts Festival is perfect for any money conscious consumer.

2) The best way to sound infinitively more intelligent is by reading the New Yorker and mimicking key words and phrases. It can then be assumed that anyone who attends the New Yorker Festival will walk away with a greater sense of self and a more diverse understanding of the universe. There will be countless panels and interviews with some of the most prolific figures in media and arts today. Christoph Waltz will be having an unchained interview with The New Yorker Susan Orlean, Aziz Ansari will be screening his newest comedy special “Burried Alive,” and Funny or Die will host an evening of sketches. These are among the many scheduled events that will be running from Oct 4-6.

 

4) A couple days later CMJ Music Marathon rolls into NYC for almost a week of non-stop concerts from Oct. 15-19. Shows will be taking place throughout the city with hundreds of up-and-coming artists from around the globe. CMJ has seen the start of numerous acts that went on to mainstream success such as Arcade Fire, Mumford & Sons, Iron &Wine, TV on the Radio, Bon Iver, MGMT and even Lady GaGa. Badge holders are granted access to shows at any of the 80 nightclubs and theaters CMJ showcases. People come from all around the world to attend CMJ to make bets on who the next artist to watch will be. Even just one day of the marathon will fulfill any music enthusiast desires for some time.

tFoodies get ready for the New York Wine & Food festival from Oct 17-20. This annual festival thrown by the Food Network will feature some of the best chefs from around the world. Some of the celebrity chefs will include Bobby Flay, Tyler Florence, Robert Irvine and Duff Goldman. However NYCWFF is about more than enjoying some really great eats it is also about ending hunger. All of the festival’s net proceeds go to the New York Food Bank. Last year the festival provided meals for over 3 million hungry New Yorkers.

This fall festivals are taking over NYC. Don’t miss out on the incredible array of events this season has to offer.

5) New York Film Festival is back for its 51st year. For over two weeks NYFF offers hundreds of movies and documentaries to entertain and engage the masses. In addition to the screening there will be open talks and dialogues with famous directors and producers. This year HBO is leading talks on their cinema style and director direction. There is also the famous convergence initiative, which NYFF uses to address the newest technologies and issues filmmakers face today, NYFF has something for everyone, but buy tickets soon as the spotlight films sell-out quickly. Make sure to catch a one of the festival screenings between Sept. 27 and Oct. 13.

6) New York Comic Con may not be called a festival but it certainly deserves to be on anyone’s radar. NYCC is possibly the largest gathering of comic book aficionados on the east coast and will be taking place Oct. 10-13. However gamers, artists and movie buffs all have countless booths and exhibits dedicated towards presenting the newest and trendiest items available on the market. This year fans should look out for the cast of “The Walking Dead,” William Shatner, actors from HBO’s “True Blood” and “Game of Thrones” and even Darryl “DMC” McDaniels. If the panels are anything like last years convention goers should be sure to get in line early as to not miss out on the fun.
