Pistachio Street Food Festival
From the 26th to the 27th
of August 2023
Italian and international stands offering pistachio specialties
The Pistachio Street Food Festival is coming back, a weekend to celebrate one of the most loved ingredients ever!
On Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th of August, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., at the Jules Biergarten & Café in the Gleisdreieck park, you will find the best street food in the city, all made with PISTACHIO!
Italian and international specialities, both sweet and savoury, that bring out the flavour and versatility of this ingredient: from panzerotti to empanadas, from pucce pugliesi to mexican tacos; from sicilian cannoli to french crêpes to tiramisu. All with one protagonist: pistachio, of course!
The Pistachio Street Food Festival is a special True Italian event that is meant to gather together all pistachio lovers in Berlin and give them the opportunity to taste delicious Italian and international specialties made with this special nut. It will be an extraordinary journey through the cuisines and cultures of different countries.
And what better way to celebrate the end of summer than with music? This year, too, there will be an all-day long DJ set to enjoy a convivial and festive atmosphere together. Entrance fee is €3 and free for children under 12. During the event there will also be a photo/video contest on Instagram, which will allow all participants to win a stay in Catania, one of the most popular cities to taste authentic pistachio goodness.
