Get Ready to Feast Your Taste Buds at MassKaNamit Food Festival!
The MassKaNamit Food Festival, the newest addition to this year’s MassKara celebration, is all set to open its doors and showcase the best of Negrense arts, culture, and cuisine. This 10-day culinary extravaganza at the Upper East Megaworld from October 13 – 22 will feature a dozen heirloom dishes from some of Bacolod’s most renowned restaurateurs.
Bacolod City Mayor Albee Benitez envisions the city becoming a major food destination in the country, and the MassKaNamit festival is a big step in that direction. The festival site will feature “curated” food kiosks, highlighting local dishes and an international food section. There will also be nightly entertainment, including a one-night outdoor cinema presentation featuring the works of award-winning film and theater director Peque Gallaga, a Bacolod native.
On the opening night, a food crawl festival will feature famous dishes that have made Bacolod a byword in foods, such as cansi, chicken inasal, callos, dinuguan with puto, batchoy, Bacolod lechon, and delicacies like piaya and barquillos, cakes, and artisanal ice cream.
Commuters are advised that one portion of the road in the Upper East, Megaworld, will be closed from 9:00 PM on October 10 to 2:00 PM on October 13 as organizers set up the stage and concessionaires set up their food kiosks. Traffic within the Megaworld site will be rerouted once the festival site opens on the 13th, and more road closures and traffic rerouting on October 21 as the site will host the Electric MassKara parade.
So mark your calendars and prepare for a culinary adventure at the MassKaNamit Food Festival! Be sure to try some of the heirloom dishes and other local favorites at the curated food kiosks. And remember to catch the nightly entertainment, including the outdoor cinema presentation featuring the works of Peque Gallaga.
See you there!
