The perfect event for everyone who loves pistachio is coming to Berlin! For the first time, a festival entirely dedicated to this ingredient.
Pistachio is loved throughout the world’s cuisine and has an extraordinary feature: it tastes amazing in both savoury and sweet recipes. Once pistachio is involved, everything looks more appetizing and beautiful to the eyes, and yet, it has never had its own gastronomic festival to be celebrated the way it deserves. However, the Pistachio Street Food Festival is ready to fill this gap on the 28th and 29th of August at the beautiful location of Jules B-Part, inside Berlin’s Gleisdreieck park. Each stand will present their pistachio themed dishes: arancini, pizza, panzerotti, beefsteak, crusted tuna, tiramisù, ceviche, Turkish baklava, octopus sandwiches and more. There will be many different representatives from all around the world, all with the goal to celebrate the best street food dishes enriched by this new exceptional ingredient.

Pistachio Street Food Festival, about the event
Approximately 15 stands and food trucks will take part in the event. Many will be Italian, or more specifically, Sicilian (like Duo Sicilian Ice Cream and Tipico Siciliano) who will prepare delicious meals with the addition of the very notorious Bronte Pistachio. However, there will also be some representatives from the Turkish, Persian cuisines, together with others, where pistachio is also a fundamental ingredient.
Pistachio Street Food Festival, not only food
The event will host DJ-set and live performances but that’s not all. The green colour will play a very important role during the whole occurence. The entry will cost 3 euros (children under the age of 12 will enter for free), but those who will arrive with a full-on green outfit (except shoes) will also have the chance to enter for free. All participants will also have the opportunity to participate in an Instagram photo contest to try and win a 50 euros coupon to be redeemed at Duo Sicilian Food Shop (pistachio pesto and creams).
Pistachio Street Food Festival, safety rules

You will also have to register via the Luca or Corona Warn App and wear a face mask while walking around the area.
