Great food should always be shared. That’s the idea behind Suffolk County’s myriad annual food festivals and events, such as the Long Island Seafood Festival held annually on the last weekend of August and Long Island’s Restaurant Week that takes place in the spring. There’s even a pickle festival, a strawberry festival and an annual Fancy Food Show that takes place in the summer. Long Island's bounty can be enjoyed by many at a variety of fun food festivals held throughout the year.
Most of the food events here in Suffolk County center around freshness – from harvest festivals to winemaking events – because in our minds food is at its best when enjoyed straight from the source. Our outstanding Long Island Wine Country promises flavorful and sustainable varieties, the Long Island Seafood Festival serves the freshest fish you’ll find anywhere, and local produce makes farm-to-table dining possible.
