Top 5 Fall Events in NYC

If you’re planning a September, October, or November visit to New York, you’ll find no shortage of fun events to attend, many of them easily accessible from Sutton Court’s East 57th Street address. From lectures to screenings to fashion shows, there’s something for everyone during fall in NYC. Here are five of the best festivals and celebrations.

New York Film Festival: September 27-October 13

The New York Film Festival is where some of the film industry’s most buzzed-about features make their debut. Not only does this event bring weeks of back-to-back screenings, but major actors, directors, and producers often make appearances to discuss their work. This year, for instance, Martin Scorsese and Pedro Almódovar will lead discussions, and Marvel will screen its new Joker film, starring Joaquin Phoenix.

New York Comic Con: October 3-6

The San Diego iteration of this yearly celebration gets most of the attention, but the New York convention is just as spectacular — and easier to get tickets for. Whether you love comics, anime, sci-fi, superhero movies, memorabilia, cosplay or anything else in between, this event shouldn’t be missed. Head to the official website to get your badge, or explore the many side events scheduled throughout the city to coincide with the convention.

New York City Wine & Food Festival: October 10-13

As the name suggests, the New York City Wine & Food Festival is dedicated to all things epicurean. Here you can expect culinary-themed parties, tastings, multi-course meals, demonstrations, and panels by celebrity chefs such as Giada de Laurentiis, Bobby Flay, and Chloe Coscarelli. Best of all, you can even learn new recipes and techniques at hands-on classes led by leading cooking instructors.

New York City Marathon: November 3

The New York City Marathon, held each November, is one of the most famous events of the entire calendar year. Drawing roughly 50,000 participants and millions of spectators, it has become the world’s biggest and most popular marathon. It also inspired the newly released movie Brittany Runs a Marathon.

New York Comedy Festival Nov 4-10

There’s no Manhattan event quite like the New York Comedy Festival, bringing out comedians such as Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, Jenny Slate, and Kathleen Madigan. Catch one of the numerous stand-up shows or Jon Stewart’s annual Stand Up for Heroes benefit for military veterans, where Stewart and Seth Meyers are joined by Bruce Springsteen for an unforgettable performance.
