Our Mission

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the Arts, as well as our local restaurants who have traditionally supported the arts, significantly. The Board of Directors of the Albany Chefs’ Food & Wine Festival are committed to assisting the Arts in Albany emerging from pandemic. Therefore, 100% of net proceeds from the Grand Gala will go toward our mission to provide sustainable funding for the not-for-profit arts community in Albany, NY.
