In a city that leads the world in fashion, finance, media, and advertising—to name a few areas—it takes something special to stand out. Our annual list highlights the parties, trade shows, benefits, and parades that draw media buzz, tourism dollars, and top players in their field. This year, upstarts like the New York City Wine & Food Festival have staked a claim to the list, and growing entities like the CMJ Music Marathon have climbed a few notches. Although the wobbly economy is likely to have serious implications for every host included here, you can bet these festivities will continue to draw attention in 2009.
