Organised and sponsored by Fairway Colombo, the Colombo Street Food Festival will set new standards for food festivals in the region with its ultimate brand of entertainment mixed with ambiance and venue.
Beginning today, the festival is made up of 10 events, which will span over selected Saturdays until May 20. Hospital Street in Colombo Fort is set to be a festive bustle of music, artists, jugglers and of course the pièce de résistance - mouth-watering cuisines, made up of a delicious combination of local and international flavours.
The Colombo Street Food Festival promises to be an event of flavour and flair, making Colombo ‘the place’ to be when it comes to culinary diversity.
Joined by Elephant House, Bally’s Entertainment and Imorich Ice Cream among others as co-sponsors, Fairway Colombo has also received the media partnership of Capital Maharaja Organisation as well as the support of Hatton national bank (HNB) as banking partners. Joining the fold, as stakeholders are the Sri Lanka Tourism Board and Urban Development Authority.
“Given the colourful culture of cuisines found in Colombo, we, at Fairway Colombo, felt that the city is a culinary destination worthy of national and international recognition,” stated Fairway Holdings Group Lifestyle Sector CEO Rajeeve Kulatunge.
“We are confident that the Colombo Street Food Festival will serve as a means of bringing in a brand-new ambiance to the culinary landscape of Colombo. We are also very grateful to our main sponsor, partners and stakeholders for their support. I have no doubt that with their collaboration we will achieve tremendous success in this venture.”
