“We wanted to showcase the vibrant culinary talent in Bucks County,” said Yeghiche Manoukian, Executive Vice President of Parx Casino®. “When foodies in the area are looking for an upscale, quality dining experience there are many reasons to stay local and skip going into the city. The local restaurant scene has grown significantly in the last few years, and we are proud to have our very own Oliveto and Liberty Bell Gastropub as part of that regional development. Our festival is the next evolution of Bucks County’s food and wine scene. Come hungry, as it will be a day of delicious offerings we won’t soon forget!”
Celebrity guest Chef Marc Murphy will be joined by area notable chefs, including Executive Chef Frank Perko of Parx Casino®, Oliveto, Liberty Bell Gastropub, Parxgrill; Chef Tim Amoroso of Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar; Chef Joe Zhou of AZ Gourmet; Chef Rich Furino of Taphouse 23; and Chef Fabian Quiroes of King George II Inn.
