The Good Fest Mini Conference

Learn, Meet Other Local Food Lovers, and Celebrate 5 Years of Local Roots NYC on May 15th!

The Good Festival seeks to grow deep roots in the food we eat and the people that grow it. We believe that anyone who eats food plays an important part in our food system, which is why The Good Festival is a unique mini conference that engages New Yorkers of varying culinary and food studies backgrounds to have a closer connection with their food and to collaborate on ways to build an authentic and mindful food system in NYC.  Whether you simply love to eat good food or you’re an aspiring farmer, we look forward to sharing ideas with you. You’ll walk away creative cooking skills, knowledge of farming, a closer relationship with your farmers, and of course, some new, cool friends.
