NYC Wine Food Fest 09Food Network fans should look into taking a New York City vacation during the 2009 Columbus Day holiday, since that's when the NYC Wine & Food Festival will kick off at the historic Chelsea Market.

The festival starts with "Chelsea Market After Dark," a custom dance party with a live DJ featuring hosts Sandra Lee and Guy Fieri as well as plenty of cocktails, flair bartenders, and food samples from the area.

Other big names appearing at the festival include Martha Stewart, Alicia Silverstone, Rocco DiSpirito, Alton Brown, Giadia de Laurentiis, Paula Deen, Jamie & Bobby Deen, Rachael Ray, Tyler Florence, Bobby Flay, Tom Colicchio, and Masaharu Morimoto, among an impressive list of other locally-known chefs.  Dozens of gourmet food classes and seminars will be offered as well, including everything from sushi rolling to cookie decorating.

Proceeds from the event will go to benefit the non-profit organizations Food Bank for New York City and Share Our Strength, whose self-explanatory motto is "No Kid Hungry."

You can find tickets on the festival's official website, as well as a full list of appearances, restaurants, and events.
