Organized by the European Chamber of Commerce (EuroCham) in Vietnam, the annual food fair will feature 25 food and drink pavilions from leading HCM City hotels and restaurants including the Caravelle, Park Hyatt, Sheraton, Sofitel, Pacharan and Pendolasco.

Delicacies will be also served up from the likes of An Nam Gourmet, New Zealand Ice Cream, Red Apron, the Vine Group and more.

Food lovers can sample an offering of cheeses imported from France and the Netherlands, along with Belgian chocolate and German beer. Delicious coffee, cappuccino and expresso drinks prepared by Espressamente Illy will also be on hand.

In addition, a host of activities are lined up to entertain audiences including live music performances by Emerald Flamenco, an “Ao dai” (Vietnamese traditional tunic) fashion show, a lucky draw for prizes and vacations, and a kids’ corner.

There will also be an exclusive charity sale of Unilever brand cosmetics to benefit Poussières de Vie and Saigon Children’s Charity.

This year’s 4th European Food Festival will be held at HCM City’s EuroCham at 257 Hoang Van Thu, Tan Binh District, from 5.30pm to 11.00pm.
