The first ever “StrEat Fest” street food festival is to be held from May 12-15 at Tour & Taxis in Brussels. The foodie festival will bring together over fifty different chefs and food stalls, presenting flavours from all around the world.
According to the event’s organisers, the event will offer “nomadic and multicultural cuisine”, including forty different concerts and DJ sets, as well as around fifty workshops in cooking, oenology, and mixology.
Visitors to the street food festival will be able to walk through 5,000 square metres of food stalls and attractions.
Terry Verhmandel, organiser of the event, told Belgian publication RTBF that he had been inspired by a similar event in Lyon, France.
“In Lyon, they welcomed 40,000 people during their fifth festival; it’s our dream, but for now we’re aiming for 10,000.”
