Bacchus StreEAT Fest
As it is now becoming a tradition, Zhenski Pazar Market will host the second Bulgarian street gourmet festival – StrEAT Fest. This year, however, it will take place on June 9 and 10 between 10 a.m. and 22 p.m. The location at Zhenski Pazar Market between the “Tsar Simeon” and “St. Saints Cyril and Methodius” streets, “Bacchus” will make this place a dream-come-true for every fan of good food, drinks and products, as well as the hottest cuisine point. Last year there were 7000 people within the fest and over 12 000 around the area on the date of the event.
This year “Bacchus” and Vazrazhdane Markets EAD held the second edition of the fest, welcoming more people on a larger area with more exhibitors. The carefully selected 70 participants were presented to the visitors of the fest. The place was separated into different areas, where guests managed to try high-quality products: various types of food, prepared on-site by famous Sofia restaurants, craft wines, craft beers, cocktails, pastry, gelato, special coffee, a selection of products of Bulgarian producers etc. For children, there was a special playground with animators, provided by IKEA, and the jazz band, orchestra and a group of DJs took care for the excellent mood during the two days of the fest.
A key part of the festival were the two areas with 15 selected restaurants, which adapted their menus especially for the “street” and offered the visitors typical meals from various national cuisines.
