We traveled along the Thames in three iconic locations going through Greenwich, Tower Bridge and Putney Bridge. We gathered around 50,000 people, we ate authentic food from over 20 traders, we tried new flavours, we sipped some yummy cocktails. Our kids sang along in Spanish, played Piñata, dressed up as Frida Kahlo, moved with painted faces holding balloons.
We danced a lot of Salsa, Bachata and burned calories with Zumba! We listened to heaps of good Latin American music, over 100 artists performed, we saw folkloric dance and ancestral Aztec dancers. We, together with Avianca Airlines and Chimu Adventures gave a trip to Colombia for two people! We united a community and we are proud to be the largest Latin American Cultural event this summer in London!
There were three weekends between April and June, FREE ENTRY with the best food and drinks, loads of kids and families activities, drinks masterclasses, dance workshops, bands and DJs! On the first one we celebrated the Malbec Day and all things Argentinean, on the second we had a Tropical Mix weekend with Mariachis, tequila workshops, rumba and much more and on the last weekend we dedicated to Brazil, as Comida Fest in the spirit of the games, announced the winner of the competition James More and a guest, who won a trip to Brazil with flights, hotel and a city tour in partnership with Chimu Adventures and LATAM. So many good times, EAT, DRINK & FIESTA!
Just the night before the Olympic Games began in Rio, Comida Fest was invited by Mais um Discos to join the Camden Som do Sentido night, at Camden Market bringing a Brazilian special selection of traders to sell the delicious pastel and sugar cane juice, churros, the famous feijoada, and mouth watering smoked meat sandwiches. Comida Fest also put on a Cachaça Yaguara Caipririnhas and beer bar refresing the night that was a hit! To the sound of DJ Lewis and the band Da Lata playing home-grown hip-hop, afrobeat, jazz and electronica and the SHN collective doing live street art performance!
