Incredible dishes, interactive cooking demos and much more… at one incredible day at #EatDrinkFestival!

Lagos’ favorite food blog, Eat.Drink.Lagos, attracted over 8,000 guests to Eko Atlantic City to celebrate its festive edition of the #EatDrinkFestival powered by Stanbic IBTC Pension Managers Limited.

“We are absolutely thrilled that the festival continues to evolve and look forward to more growth,” noted #EatDrinkFestival founder Folayemi Agusto.  “This year’s Festival was our biggest to date and we are extremely grateful to have partners that fully bought into our vision.”

The third edition of the festival featured 50+ vendors, including a selection of restaurants on the Jumia Food platform, as well as a Tasting Tent presented by American Honey. The highly anticipated festival also featured a very special cooking demo from the Maggi Kitchen led by Chigul as well as an intimate tasting session from Thermocool.

Tasty dishes were served, delicious cocktails were drunk, and great fun was had by all! #EatDrinkFestival will be back in the summer of 2017. Visit eatdrinkfestival.com for the most up-to-date news and information.

    Is a camera now a fashion accessory?? Every body seems to hang it on their neck and still cant capture an image to save their life.

    I thought I’d missed out on a wonderful event seeing as I’m such a foodie. Until my sister, who went with friends told me that, among other issues (like traffic) there were no bathrooms! What? even if the average person spent 2 hours there, what about the vendors who spent all day? She said when they complained about it being a health hazard, they were told to “get creative,” in the beach sand! I can only hope vendors purchased water to wash up after whatever food or waste touched their hands.

    She said they went pretty late in the day and there were barely any stalls with food left, but were smart enough to park outside the venue and walk (a very long one in the heat.) Yet after spending about 1.5 hours walking around, they strolled back out and met people they passed still waiting in queue to exit the event.

    Here’s my free suggestion: when you hold events like this, work with a nearby location (maybe Eko hotel) with plenty of coordinated parking available. Rent a few shuttle buses to drive people to and from parking to the venue, so you can avoid this massive parking hold up.

    Further, please invest in mobile toilets and wash areas. It is so unsanitary to think no restrooms existed. That alone would guarantee I wouldn’t touch any of the food.

      There were most certainly toilets at the event. I was there.
