Italian Street Food Festival: the event
The fourth edition of the Italian Street Food Festival is taking place on Saturday, the 18th and Sunday, the 19th of June, from 11 am to 10 pm at the Osthafen (Alt Stralau 1-2, 10245 Berlin) and includes the presence of almost 20 stands and food trucks such as Focacceria San Francesco, Isola Italia, Duo Sicilian Ice Cream, Kuchen von Gaia and many others. The ticket will cost 3€ but it’s free entry for children under 12. The initiative combines the best of the Italian cuisine, ice cream included, Aperol Spritz for only 4€ the whole weekend and a special Italian Dj-set hosted by Borghetta Stile, a DJ collective from Rome coming to Berlin exactly for the event. Prepare yourself for the tastiest tour around the Italian street food tradition in Berlin! Furthermore, the Italian artist in Berlin Lorenzo Deidda will have a stand with his beautiful paintings and will organise a live painting session during the event.
Italian Street Food Festival: the photo contest
Participants will have the chance to participate in a photo contest by taking a picture during the Italian Street Food Festival and posting it on their Instagram profile with the hashtag: #italianstreetfoodfestival. The winner will get a three-night stay for two people in Sicily. Why Sicily? Well, it’s the perfect location to celebrate and experience first-hand one of the most important places for the Italian street food tradition. You can find more details about the contest here and on True Italian’s social media channels.
An exceptional Italian DJ-set: Borghetta Stile land in Berlin
With the return of the Italian Street Food Festival, good music certainly could not be missing. They are called Borghetta Stile and are the most famous Roman DJ collective in Italy, active since 2006. Their style: dance music from the 90s, cartoons, bubblegum pop and disguises. In short, a charge of laughs and fun for the Berlin crowd with a totally alternative style. Their DJ set is scheduled for both days from 5.30 pm until closing time (10 pm).
The Italian street food tradition
The great variety of street food is definitely one of the most popular aspects of Italian gastronomic tradition. Travelling all around Italy, you can taste traditional and genuine products that captivate your five senses: everybody knows that the eyes are the first thing that makes you want to taste food. One of Italy’s major wealth is the cuisine: recipes that are inspired by the tradition of the past, a fusion of customs that will be generously proposed at the Italian Street Food Festival. An event that allows non-Italians to know the best of Italy and makes Italians feel at home in Berlin, even if just for a while.
