Northwestern Istria’s visitors looking for excellent food and drink from the region can enjoy a brand new open-air gourmet and wine event held at original locations in Novigrad’s old town centre. At town parks right by the sea, Park Food Fest brings together street food and show cooking from renowned local restaurants. In one day, guests can enjoy diverse and inventive ready-to-eat meals made with seasonal ingredients, prepared and served just like in top restaurants.
The main star on the plates during this festival in May will be wild asparagus, the “queen of the forest” and an essential seasonal ingredient in Istrian cuisine. There will be both traditional dishes and seafood delicacies with asparagus – from frittatas and risottos with asparagus to salads, brodetto and original burgers. Given the fact that the street food concept goes well beyond traditional culinary rules and principles, you can expect entirely new, different and unique gourmet experiences at Park Food Fest amidst the singular atmosphere of this Mediterranean town and its magnificent parks.
The creative, delicious meals prepared by chefs from Michelin-rated restaurants at each of the festival’s parks will be paired with world-class white and red wines by northwestern Istria’s winemakers, as well as excellent craft beers made by Istrian brewers. To round off the experience, each location will have its own musical backdrop from the afternoon until the early evening.
Visit us at Novigrad’s Park Food Fest and be a part of a unique, unforgettable hedonistic adventure for all five senses to revel in! Welcome and bon appétit!
