UAE’s leading international street food and food truck event returns to Burj Park in Downtown Dubai in February 2017
Dubai, UAE – 21 December, 2016: Etisalat presents Eat the World DXB, the UAE’s leading international street food and food truck event, will return to Burj Park in Downtown Dubai from 23-25 February, 2017.
After the inaugural Eat the World DXB’s ‘Best of British’ food trader and food truck concept attracted a crowd of 20,000-plus foodies and their families earlier this year, the 2017 event will go one continent further: the Americans are coming.
Ten US-based food traders representing the very best of the birthplace of the international, contemporary street food movement will join ranks to face-off against 10 UK-based traders – most of which will operate out of their iconic food truck vehicles – in the three-day food frenzy. The competition will be tough but, according to the event organisers, the only winners will be the Dubai public.
“The response to our first Eat the World DXB was fantastic; the public praised the food, the affordability and the originality of the concept. Dubai is not a place to stand still so we’re mixing the format up by bringing in the Americans for year two. Eat the World DXB 2017 will see the birthplace of the street food movement versus the movement’s current superpower – and that means more food and more choice for our guests,” said Philip Lowery, Director of Food Market Events Middle East FZ LLC, which owns and operates Eat the World DXB.
A contemporary street food, music and entertainment event, Eat the World DXB 2017 will include a sprinkling of the UAE’s leading food truck options – selected on their originality and the diversity of their culinary concepts – as well as a celebrity chef theatre, an artisanal food market and an array of exciting food-themed experiences including an outdoor cinema featuring a specially curated programme of food-themed films served with a menu catered to each movie – so forget 3-D and 4-D, this is genuine foo-D cinema.
Held in association with Dubai Food Festival 2017 and with Emaar Properties as venue sponsor, the family-first event will also feature free activities for the entire family to enjoy, including cookery demonstrations, a tea and cake feature, children’s activities and entertainment zone, an extended programme of live music and a traditional Bedouin tent with falconry and fresh Arabic coffee.
A full line-up of food trucks and traders from the USA and UK will be announced in coming weeks. For more information and tickets for Eat the World DXB 2017, visit: www.eattheworld.ae
