Bahrain Tourism to launch 5th edition of Bahrain Food Festival

100 restaurants taking part over the course of the two periods of the festival, bringing the total number of participants this year to over 200


The Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA) is set to launch the fifth edition of its annual Bahrain Food Festival, which will be held over two periods, with the first starting from February 20 to February 29, and the second from March 5 to March 14 at Bahrain Bay.

This event comes in line with BTEA’s vision to develop the tourism sector by organising a series of events and activities which would enhance the kingdom’s position as a leading regional gastronomy destination.

There will be 100 restaurants taking part over the course of the two periods of the festival, bringing the total number of participants this year to over 200. The restaurants will be offering a wide range of delicious cuisines, and this year’s edition is especially distinguished since it will be held in an even large space which will be divided into several sections. The food festival, which will take place every Sunday to Wednesday from 4pm to 11pm and Thursday to Saturday from 4pm to 12am; will also feature a long line of entertainment, including a children’s play area, a traditional village which will offer local food and live cooking stations, as well as fun competitions and live musical performances on stage.

"We are delighted to be hosting the fifth edition of the Bahrain Food Festival, which is easily one of the most anticipated events favoured by tourists and locals alike, as it continues to witness an increase of the number of visitors year after year. The festival also provides an ideal opportunity for participating restaurants to showcase their products in front of a wide audience and gain popularity. With the overall aim of drawing more visitors from across the region, this event comes in line with BTEA’s strategy to continuously expand its calendar and variety of events and festivals held in the Kingdom,” said chief executive officer of BTEA, Nader Al Moayyed.

The festival will offer a variety of F&B options, and feature a creative and diverse selection of vendors, ranging from healthy and organic food, to street food and gastronomic delicacies; and will also include fun activities and entertainment suitable for the whole family.

Hosting the event comes in line with the BTEA’s strategy which aims to develop and strengthen the tourism sector under the slogan of ‘Ours. Yours’, thereby contributing towards the kingdom’s economy and to achieving the 2030 Economic Vision. - TradeArabia News Service
