Now in its 15th year, Taste of the Village returns next month with a delicious fundraiser for Washington Square Park. Hosted by the Washington Square Park Conservancy, more than 30 local purveyors will set up under the historic Arch, offering samples of their tasty food and drinks accompanied by performances by Park musicians. This year’s roster includes longtime favorites like Murray’s Cheese, The Spotted Pig, and Otto, along with much-talked-about newcomers including Nix, Loring Place, and Seabird.
6sqft has partnered with the Conservancy to offer two lucky readers the chance to win a pair of VIP tickets–which is worth $250 and provides one-hour early access to the event, taking place on September 19th from 5:30-8:00pm.
HERE’S HOW TO ENTER:
On Monday, September 11th we’ll randomly pick one winner from our Facebook page and one from Instagram, each of whom will receive a set of two tickets.

The art world is back in full swing this week. Head to Chelsea this Thursday and meander around the countless openings (and enjoy the cheap, swill chardonnay). Be sure to stop by Joseph Gross Gallery for their opener with Jesse Draxler and Chad Wys. Takashi Murakami’s protege opens a show of her gorgeous embroidery, and performance artist Jill Sigman explores the world of plants and weeds through dance. A group of artists pay tribute to 9/11 with an immersive exhibition called Loft in the Red Zone, and downtown artists and performer Kembra Pfahler joins Howl for their Writer’s Block series. Central Park is getting a brand new giant sculpture inspired by a shopping list thanks to the Public Art Fund, and Bloomingdale’s semi-secret train car restaurant stays open for a special chef’s tasting dinner. Speaking of food, sample all that Greenwich Village has to offer at Washington Square Park’s Taste of the Village event. Finally, gather some patience and wait in the long lines to experience Refinery29’s epic 29Rooms, which transforms 80,000 square feet of warehouse space into 29 experiential art installations.
