If you've ever watched Bobby Flay, Rachael Ray, Geoffrey Zakarian and Alex Guarnaschelli on TV and thought to yourself, "Man, it would be so cool to meet those chefs someday," that day has come — well, it will in a few months, actually.

The New York City Wine & Food Festival brings together your favorite Food Network chefs like Bobby and Rachael, plus industry professionals including famed chocolatier Jacques Torres and Dominique Ansel, the creator of the ever-popular Cronut, in the Big Apple for a four-day celebration of all things eating and drinking. This fall festival kicks off on Thursday, Oct. 13 and runs throughout the weekend, wrapping up on Sunday, Oct. 16.

Featuring walk-around tastings, late-night bashes and elegant sit-down dinners alike, the 2016 event lineup is packed with parties and plans for every taste. You can chow down on burgers with Rachael at Burger Bash, mingle with Katie Lee and Marcela Valladolid at their Harvest Party, join Bobby and his bud Michael Symon for a Backyard BBQ, or hang out with the cast of Chopped at a rooftop soiree. Tickets are on sale now — buy them here.
