Colombo Food Festival from today
Colombo Food Festival, Sri Lanka's largest outdoor food carnival will
kick off today at the ViharaMaha Devi Open Air Theatre. The event will
bring together a wide variety of food including organically grown
produce, natural foods, fresh juices, snacks, fast foods, bakery
products and much more.
Speaking on the decision to launch out such an event, Founder of the
Colombo Food Festival RajithaMelder notes, "Colombo is overflowing with
eateries that serve everything from traditional Sri Lankan dishes to
food from the four corners of the world.
However, when it comes to making a choice of dining out with friends
or family most of us have quite a dilemma in making a choice. Especially
in a group of people the likes and dislikes will definitely vary. What
the Colombo Food Festival does is simplify the decision making process
by bringing all types of vendors serving up food from around the world
under one roof."
Stalls at the event will be truly inter-continental with food from
Japan, Italy, Mexico, India, Arabia, Canada and Sri Lanka available to
tantalize customer's taste buds.
Colombo Food Festival will be open from 10am to 10pm every Sunday
from the 5th of June onwards. The main reasons for selecting the
ViharaMaha Devi Open Air Theatre is the multitudes that throng to the
children's park and walking tracks every weekend.
Entrance to the Colombo Food Festival will be free of charge, while
smoking and alcohol are strictly prohibited as it is a family-oriented
