Macao is set to host a 10-day international food event in June, bringing together the public and representatives from other UNESCO-designated Creative Cities of Gastronomy around the world to explore food trends and promote culinary development.

The International Cities of Gastronomy Fest is set to unfold at Fisherman’s Wharf’s Convention and Exhibition Centre from 14-23 June, the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) has announced

According to the event’s webpage, attendees can expect around 100 food stalls, 60 culinary demonstrations from world-renowned chefs, and performances during the ten days.

On 17 June, food and beverage professionals from around the world are scheduled to gather for the fourth International Gastronomy Forum – an “in-depth discussion on the collaborative development in the field of gastronomy across different sectors,” according to MGTO. Inaugurated in 2016, the forum last took place in 2019.

Creative Cities of Gastronomy are UNESCO-recognised places where unique culinary traditions are nurtured, among other criteria. Macao was declared a Creative City of Gastronomy in 2017 for its distinctive Macanese cuisine.

MGTO has not announced which other Creative Cities of Gastronomy will be represented at the event. There are 65 in total, including Parma in Italy, Phetchaburi in Thailand, Russia’s Saint Petersburg and Santa Maria da Feira in Portugal.
