About Around the World: The Food and Drink Festival

This is a convention of the best cuisine from around the world meeting at one specific place. Various countries have their own amazing cuisine that tells the story of who they are and others are also curious to enjoy them. However, while some cannot travel, by human nature people cannot be everywhere.

That is why Around the World: The Food and Drink Festival is perfect to assemble the national cuisine for people in one specific location. The three-day event will be a melting-pot of diverse cultures and people who just want to savour food from Around the World.
