ATTENTION! LGUs and Food-Related Establishments: Flavors of the Philippines Regional Weekend Mania!
On all weekends of April this year, the entire country comes alive with a month-long festival of food-related events and activities to catapult the message that the Philippines is indeed the gourmet capital in Asia. Flavors of the Philippines, a regional culinary showdown, is the run-up promotional campaign onward to the upcoming international event of the year now dubbed as Madrid Fusion Manila (MFM) to be held on April 24-26, 2015 at the SMX Mall of Asia, Pasay City.
Local government units in tandem with their private tourism stakeholders (hotels, restaurants, resorts, bistros, malls, culinary schools and food companies) are now enjoined to participate in this nationwide campaign by coming up with their own events relating to their own local flavors and cuisine.
Among the weekend activities recommended include: Tapas Festival, food tours, weekend markets and agri fairs / food bazaars, food festivals cum concerts / music fests in hotels and restaurants, man versus food challenge, fashion shows, mall-based events, food trucks, among other activities.
The Department of Tourism is committed to provide the following: promotional materials like accreditation stickers for display in establishments that agree to hold each and every one of these recommended activities, inclusion in the Flavors of the Philippines directory / calendar of events and promotion via MFM website, social media, tri-media releases, among others.
