Abuja’s first ever annual and exclusive Grill & BBQ Festival will hold in Abuja on the 1 of October, 2015, Independence Day.
The Grind presents Abuja Grill & BBQ Festival 2015, titled ‘ Independence feast of flavours’ .
This family event will feature delicious grill food from the best 15 Grill & BBQ top Chefs and Joints across Abuja, a few selection from Lagos and other states, a fun fair for kids and entertainment for all.
Major Grill and BBQ festivals are popularly held around the world; most notably in Melbourne, Australia, Texas, Nashville, etc. in the USA, Bristol in the United Kingdom, South Africa and most recently in Lagos Nigeria, at the Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island during the Easter period this year.
Following the success of the Lagos Festival, The Grind decided to tour major cities, with Abuja being the next stop.
“This event will be the first of its Kind in Abuja, and a bit different from most of the food and garden events popular with the city. The Abuja Grill & Bbq event is an International event, with a fusion of the Western style Grill and authentic Naija grill & BBQ, with a lot of entertainment, food tasting, fun, games & party for family and friends during the independence celebration in the Capital. For Vendors/Exhibitors it’s an opportunity to market and explore the opportunities the festival brings, with the gathering of grill/food lovers and also promote the grill and bbq culture, as well as their own businesses, showcasing their unique and different styles of grilling poultry, seafood, meats, fruits etc. In other words, this is their own exclusive trade fair!" Says Francis Ebie, Chief Coordinator of the event.
The Abuja Grill & BBQ Festival will hold at the exclusive and prestigious, Harrow Park in Wuse, and this destination will be transformed into a summer style festival with gazebos, comfortable seating areas, bars, cocktail tables and a big stage for the performances.
There will be an entertainment host who will keep people entertained and keep the momentum going during entertainment intervals.
A section of the park will be for the kids with interactive games, bouncy castles, a game truck and play pens.
The adults will also get to channel their ‘inner kid’ as there will be fun food competitions like ‘How many hot wings can you eat’ and the ‘fastest burger eater’ contests.
The winners of these contests will go home with great prizes courtesy of the sponsors and partners of the event
Guests can look forward to entertainment from top musical, Comedy and dance acts, including a special grill show and master classes from a Top chef in the industry.
The event Kicks off 12noon and ends 10pm with an afterparty to follow at a prestigious lounge in Abuja till dawn.
Come and be a part of this feast of flavors this Independence day.
