Once a year over 70 of the finest area restaurants, bars and eateries come together to donate their time, talent and cuisine for the Audi FESTIVAL.

Philly food moguls Stephen Starr, Michael Solomonov, and Audrey Claire Taichman sponsored and supported Audi FEASTIVAL to benefit FringeArts and the local Philadelphia art community.

What makes this celebration different from the previous years is that it was held at the FringeArts headquarters. From the moment guests checked in, they were greeted with a visually spectacular movements from dancers, acrobats and performance artists.

All of your senses were tantalized. After taking a break indulging in the many small bites and speciality cocktails, visitors viewed amazing feats of dance and performance arts and range from the magical to mind blowing.
