Kota Kinabalu’s first food festival makes its inaugural debut from 9th July 2011 (Saturday) to 22nd July 2011 (Friday). Appropriately themed as “A Tasty Turn of Events”, the Kota Kinabalu Food Festival is a 2 week showcase of Food & Beverage establishments in and around Kota Kinabalu.
Organized by Malaysia’s first premier online lifestyle magazine, LifeAndStyle.com.my, the crux of the Kota Kinabalu Food Fest is to discover and promote varied dining options in our city, catering not only to dedicated gourmands, but also to those of us who are very simply foodies at heart.
The Kota Kinabalu Food Fest encourages delicious experimenting by way of a specially designed “Festival Menu” – available only throughout the duration of the festival. Diners will be able to enjoy unique offerings from participating establishments in this first-of-its-kind event.
The Kota Kinabalu Food Festival culminates in a Gala Dinner which will be hosted on the final day of the festival to celebrate the diversity of our city’s food heritage. This main crowd puller of the festival brings with it a fun and relaxed feel. Marry this with stellar entertainment and you’ve got all the ingredients for an appetizing evening to remember. Participants of the Kota Kinabalu Food Fest include restaurants, lounges and bars attached to hotels, stand alone F&B outlets, qualified chain eateries, as well as gourmet food products and wine suppliers.
To cultivate the culture of appreciating good food and wine.
To encourage the development of creativity in our local dining scene.
To generate awareness and promote the local food and beverage industry.
To provide a platform for networking and interaction amongst industry players.
