The 7th European Food Festival this year was again a big success and attracted approximately 3,000 food lovers. The festival took place on 24th March 2018 at the Lao National Cultural Hall. Co-organised by the European Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Lao PDR (ECCIL) and the European Union, the festival showcased the diverse and flavourful cuisine of European countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Russia). Apart from food, there were fun activities and lucky draw organised by the EU and ECCIL as well as the drawing station for the kids who joined the festival.
This year more than 25 restaurants presented their best dishes in the festival. There were also more performances this year. The festival started with the Great Commonwealth Cook-off, where different embassies in Laos cooked and presented their national dishes in a food competition. Malaysian Embassy won the first place. The Cook-off were followed by the performances from the Lao National Circus, Beasts on the Moon, Fanglao Dance, the Motive Band, the Balck Magic and DJ PIERRE. Participants had a blast listening and dancing to the live music and enjoying a variety of European cuisine.
Special thanks to the European Union as a main supported for this event, and our sponsor Ford.
