The International Food Festival 2018

Here at The Xara Palace Relais & Chateaux, we’ve got our foodie radar switched on and our mouths are already salivating at the thought of the upcoming edition of the International Food Festival.

The 4th edition is coming to Mdina between Thursday, 19th and Sunday, 22nd July 2018. Four days of heaven for all the foodies out there. We are awaiting a celebration of gastronomic alfresco eating and drinking, culture and history, as well as entertainment for everyone.

This free Festival will be held in the Mdina Ditch, which separates the Silent City from Rabat. This ditch which has been tastefully transformed into a fully accessible public garden will accommodate the expected 25,000 food connoisseurs.

This edition of the International Food Festival, supported by the Malta Tourism Authority, hosts more than 50 chefs and 12 international cuisines prepared with fresh products, local produce, Thai Food, Lebanese, Indian and many others.

It is the opportunity for visitors to discover, travel and taste the diversity of the world cuisines. Beyond the culinary world the visitors will be able to wander about different stands and mouthwatering food stalls to please their eyes and taste buds.

During the festival all chefs will prepare many surprises and different live cooking shows. Fun activities and animation will take place in order to entertain the young ones.

In a nutshell, the festival will consist of live cooking shows, culture and history, 50 international chefs, 100 international tasters and plates, 3 entertainment stages, exhibitors selling products, children’s area and lounge area and a chill out area. The entrance is free.
