Larnaka International Food Festival

Within the framework of the International Food Day (16 October) and the International Month of Multiculturalism (October), we are organizing the “Larnaka International Food Festival”. The aim is to promote multiculturalism and to get acquainted with the tastes that exist between us. We want to broadcast social messages, as well as entertain local and foreign visitors.

The organization has no profit goal in itself, so part of the revenue will support a Larnaca charity. The various professionals will represent different cuisines from China, Thailand, Japan, America, Argentina, Italy, Romania, Bulgaria, Lebanon, Mexico, England, Cyprus, Greece and others. At the same time, there will be music from different parts of the world (from bands and Dj).
