The Great Chefs Event Philadelphia, a legendary culinary event hosted by Marc Vetri, brings together esteemed chefs from across the country to create gourmet tasting plates for all attendees. Held at the Urban Outfitters Headquarters in the Philadelphia Navy Yard, this unique event is changing to a family-friendly, daytime format this year.

There will still be the same level of decadent dishes and dazzling drinks for everyone to enjoy, including an all new beer garden. Take a Saturday afternoon and come sample spectacular cuisine to help benefit the fight against childhood cancer.

More than 40 spectacular chefs will cook amazing dishes at the Urban Outfitters headquarters in the Navy Yard for an event full of delectable dining and delightful drinks. We hope to see you there on June 9th!
