CITY HARVEST’S ANNUAL “WINTER FAMILY CARNIVAL” RETURNS ON MARCH 12
March 12 @ 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM
City Harvest’s premier family event, City Harvest Presents The 2023 Winter Family Carnival: Electric Safari, is back in-person for the first time since 2020. This year’s hosts are City Harvest Junior Food Council members Madeline and Anna Zakarian, and participating chefs, restaurants, and mixologists include Butcher Bar, Muddling Memories, Riverpark, Scampi, SONA, Wayan, and Zola Bakes.
City Harvest’s annual Winter Family Carnival will raise money to help City Harvest, New York City’s first and largest food rescue organization, feed the millions of New Yorkers experiencing food insecurity. As monthly visits to New York City food pantries and soup kitchens have risen nearly 70% compared to pre-pandemic levels, all proceeds from the event will support the organization’s work rescuing and delivering fresh, nutritious food to families in need across the five boroughs. Guests of all ages will enjoy a fun-filled afternoon with delicious tasting stations from some of the city’s most notable chefs and restaurants, all while immersed in an exciting Electric Safari theme with dynamic live entertainment.
Non-alcoholic specialty drinks will be available for kids, while a full open bar will be enjoyed by parents.
Activities will include:
• Projects from The Craft Studio, such as safari hat & party sunglasses decorating and make-your-own animal mini cakes
• Creative games such as glow air hockey, Pop-A-Shot, and a virtual roller coaster
• Interactive photo booth
• Face painting
• Special play area for toddlers
