Welcome to the second annual Harlem EatUp! Festival.

Main Stage. With all of this and more, you need to be in here!
When friends and founders of the Harlem EatUp! Festival, executive chef, restaurateur and Harlemite Marcus Samuelsson and veteran event marketer, Herb Karlitz, put their heads together about celebrating Harlem they couldn’t be stopped. Three months later, together with the sage insight and support of Harlem business tastemakers and residents, they would announce Harlem EatUp! to the world!
As part of its mission and dedication to Harlem, the Festival will donate proceeds from ticket sales to Harlem Park to Park and Citymeals-on-Wheels. Respectively, both organizations continue to provide a positive and direct impact on the community through small business support and feeding Harlem’s homebound elderly.
In the final days of the 1910s, Harlem experienced a cultural, artistic, and intellectual re-awakening that became known as the Harlem Renaissance. The neighborhood became the destination for New Yorkers. The city's best musicians, best new artists, best new writers, were being forged in that cauldron, all set to the sound of a new piano music called the Harlem Stride style. Harlem speakeasies became the very definition of the Jazz Age -- places like Tillie’s Chicken Shack, Pod’s and Jerry’s, the Rhythm Club, and Harry Hansberry’s Clam House.
The 2016 Harlem Whiskey Renaissance on March 25, 2016 seeks to celebrate the era of the Harlem Renaissance by providing an evening of music, performance, food, and of course, whiskey, that hearkens back to the era that gave us everything from Chick Webb to Claude McKay, Louis Armstrong to Zora Neal Hurston to Josephine Baker. We've lined up brands to pour whiskey from around the world and talk about the history of their spirits, with music provided by the Renaissance-inspired Dandy Wellington.
Most of the old speakeasies are long gone, but for one night at Mist Harlem, you can get a taste of the Harlem Renaissance along with several tastes of some of the best whiskies in the world.
