Behind the Scenes: Picnic the Film Fest Nights Away with Hester Street Fair

Behind the Scenes is a weekly series that covers an aspect of the HBO Bryant Park Summer Film Festival presented by Bank of America, from food to films, traditions to (Airstream) trailers. This series will post each Sunday evening, letting you in on another secret behind the Film Fest. Stick with us for all 10 weeks; by the end you'll be an expert!  

Hester Street Fair returns, presenting an exciting roster of snacks, meals and treats for your evenings at the Film Fest. Each week, the fair will set up a Food Area from 4pm until the start of the film on the Fountain Terrace. This is the movie theater concession stand you've always dreamed of with gourmet food to enhance your film experience.

2013 Hester Street Fair Vendors at the Film Festival 

Sample a variety of up and coming food concepts like Rosette's roasted avocado with chili yogurt, puffed rice, bonito flakes, or lobster truffle mac and cheese from An Artistic Taste. And just in time for the World Cup, get a taste of Brazil with Café Patoro's homemade pao de queijo, a small cheese-flavored roll, spiced up with different fillings.

The best part about Hester Street Fair is that you don't have to choose! Try a different vendor each week and get a true taste of the Film Festival by the end of summer.
