Food Of World Arts Celebration

Posted on July 13, 2016 at 9:16 AM by Communications Department

Let your taste buds globetrot at the World Arts Celebration this Saturday with food vendors representing five countries: Down to the Bone with Jamaicanfood1_SC cuisine, Tucanos Brazilian Grill, Greece - Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church, Monique’s Crepes from France, and a taste of Italy with Two Nations Eats, Deluca Gelato, and Made 4 U Italian Ice. There is also a cultural mashup with Karnage Asada who combines the best Latin and Asian flavors.

These vendors are offering a variety of foods unique and individual to each culture. It’s a great time to enjoy a cold Italian gelato while watching Irish dancing and viewing different exhibits from Ukraine, Egypt, Panama and more. Then sit down to enjoy a French crepe from Monique’s or kickin’ jerk chicken from Down to the Bone while listening to music from Northern India infused with jazz and rock. If you’ve never had chance to visit the Mediterranean, enjoy Greek cuisine from Saints Constantine and Helen. The blend of different styles of cuisine is sure to give you a cultural experience you’ll enjoy especially when eating food from Karnage Asada.
The World Arts Celebration is taking place Saturday, July 16 from 4 PM to 9 PM in City Center. Admission and parking are free. Updates and announcements will be posted on Facebook and Twitter @nnfestivals throughout the event.
