Smith Street Soup Festival, October 2010
Now in its 4th year, the Smith Street "Festivale Des Soupes" has become a favorite neighborhood event. Organized by South Brooklyn Local Development Corporations (SBLDC), the Food Festival will allow people to sample and judge about 25 soups made by some of Smith Street's best eateries as they stroll along the sidewalks of Smith Street from Atlantic Avenue to Second Street.

Not only is it drawing bigger crowds every year, but the list of participating eateries is getting longer.
So come early. Below is all the pertaining information:

It's a "Soup Crawl". It's Delicious! It's Warming! It's a fun day with friends! It's family friendly!
It's amazingly affordable! It's everyone's favorite street event in Brooklyn.
And it's all for a good cause- South Brooklyn, LDC shares this fund raiser with a culinary arts program we help support at our local public high school. The School For International Studies. Unlike most courses where a text book or two per student is the semester expense, food, the raw ingredients for this course are far more costly and our soup festival helps meet the needs.
