Brooklyn Bugs' mission is to raise appreciation and awareness of edible insects through delicious, fun, and creative programming. After producing NYC’s first festival dedicated to edible insects over Labor Day Weekend in 2017, Brooklyn Bugs received notable press that shared its interest in promoting the gastronomical, sustainable and ecologically friendly aspects of entomophagy or the human consumption of insects.
We are committed to educate and encourage people that this is not a food trend, but a movement that will continue to grow worldwide.
Tuesday, February 20th - Super super excited that Brooklyn Bugs will be making its Manhattan debut at Ms Yoo! We'll have ten delectable dishes to share, and hope you can join us!
We're very happy to announce that we will be donating a portion of the proceeds to the incredible non-profit Farms for Orphans, Inc. Please follow them and support their work.
Special thanks to all our incredibly supportive sponsors for the event: Entosense, Inc, Entomo Farms - The Future of Food, Merci Mercado, Dinner Echo, Wagner Vineyards, and Ms Yoo.

LA Bug Fair
May 19th & 20th - Natural Museum History
East meets West— coasts, that is— as Brooklyn’s top bug chef, Joseph Yoon, shares the stage with Seattle’s favorite entomophage, David George Gordon (and frequent guest to the Bug Fair stage). Together, they’ll prove that there’s more than one way to skin a cat(erpillar) as they prepare an assortment of six- and eight-legged treats, serving them to the crowd both during and after their show.
