Constantly moving across urban centres, every festival brings together the most talented chefs, food vendors and food brands all in one location. It is an entire experience designed to allow people of all ages, relax and spend the whole day exploring exciting side attractions from eating competitions to live trivia, cook-offs, drinking competitions and dance-offs.”

He said beyond the excitement and thrill of introducing people to tasteful dishes in an atmosphere of fun, ‘the Food Fest seeks to help people rediscover the joy and magic in food…. Urban Food Fest wants to emphasize the benefits of delicious meals prepared creatively without sacrificing nutritional and health benefits. ”
