Canstruction New York
November 7 - November 21Free
Canstruction, the world’s most inventive and imaginative annual food charity competition & exhibition returns for its 27th year to Brookfield Place on November 7th through the 21st. Canstruction is where teams compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food. At the close of the exhibition all of the canned food from the New York City competition will be donated to City Harvest.
Awards will be granted in the following categories: Best Original Design, Structural Ingenuity, Best Meal, Most Cans, Cheri C. Melillo Award, Honorable Mention, and People’s Choice.
New York City is joined by over 150 cities across North America and other countries such as Australia and New Zealand who will hold Canstruction competitions in the coming year. Highlighting the creativity and compassion of top architectural and engineering firms, these astounding structures are helping to change the world – by lifting the spirits of those in need, by raising public awareness, and most importantly, by collecting millions of pounds of food for local food banks.
The exhibit will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, including Saturday and Sunday, except the 21st when the exhibit closes at 6:00 p.m. to dismantle the cansculptures. It’s free to attend; however, all visitors are asked to bring a can of food to donate to City Harvest.
