Caribbean Food Week Festival heads to Brixton

Celebrate Caribbean Food Week in style with the Caribbean Food Week Festival; the second annual celebration of Caribbean food, fashion and music, coming to Windrush Square in Brixton.

Taking place on 25th and 26th August (11am – 7pm), this two-day event will bring Caribbean culture to Brixton, with live cookery demonstrations, authentic street food, a Caribbean market, and live music to complete the Caribbean vibe.

Caribbean chefs will be on stage with live cookery demos, and will be on hand to share top tips with visitors looking to cook Caribbean at home.

For the first time, visitors will also be able to make use of a bespoke Snapchat filter, custom made for Caribbean Food Week 2017; giving visitors the chance to share their experience with friends in a fun and unique way.

The event will also be supported on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, with followers being encouraged to share their experiences and photos via the official Caribbean Food Week channels, and the chance to win prizes via exclusive giveaways.

“Following the success of last year’s first annual Caribbean Food Week Festival, we can’t wait to return to Brixton with a taste of all that the Caribbean has to offer,” says Nyree Chambers, Head of Marketing at Grace Foods UK.

“Caribbean Food Week is all about experimenting with new flavours, and enjoying the authentic taste of Caribbean cooking from your very own kitchen. We’re hopeful that this event will give confidence to home cooks looking to try out Caribbean cuisine for the first time, or even looking to pick up new skills from our live demonstrations.
