SicilyFEST, the Sicilian-themed food & drink event organised by PopUpMarketSicily in collaboration with P&A events, doubles up for this 2019 bringing to London a second edition in October.
Sicily in autumn is just stunning: a warm red sun matches the earthy hues of pomegranates, chestnuts and vine leaves and the warm colour palette of the landscape.
So, let’s FALL (pun intended) in Love with SicilyFEST!
On October 18-19-20 once again SicilyFEST will celebrate Sicily and its deliciously good products at The Boiler House in Brick Lane, right here in the heart of London!
The Boiler House on Brick Lane will host a special autumnal, super tasty and mouth-watering invasion of odours and tastes from the beautiful pearl of the Mediterranean. And SicilyFEST is ready to “conquer” Londoners – and their taste buds – as it always has in the past editions with a wide selection of arancini, wine, cannoli, cheese, pasta and many many more surprises.
Because, may the seasons and things around us change, but at least we have one absolute and incontestable certainty: we love food, we love to eat, and we love to share our passion for good Sicilian food!
SicilyFEST will run for three days, from Friday 18h of October to Sunday 20th: three days to enjoy the tantalising array of stalls which focus on Sicilian food produce, wine and drinks. A unique, exciting and not to be missed experience for the London foodie.
SicilyFEST celebrates also Sicilian culture, so visitors will be able to enjoy a special exhibition of authentic Sicilian carts by Muscà (The Museum of Sicilian carts): the Sicilian cart is one of the world-known symbols of Sicilian folklore, it was used not only as a means of transportation but also as a storytelling media – call it the Instagram of the old days – on wheels with its intricately carved wood and hand-drawn paintings of famous scenes from history, tradition and religion.
“Made in Sicily” mean also creativity and art: over the three days, visitors will be able to enjoy live music exhibitions by folk singer Saura Sauta and The Heron Temple and dj set by Jerry Prestigiacomo and Nunzio Ciuridda, in addition to free master classes by Chef Enzo Oliveri (president of FIC-UK), Chef Carmelo Carnevale (President of APCI-UK), and Chef Alessandro Ingiulla from One-Michelin-starred restaurant Sapio.
Young visitors will also find a kids creativity corner, in collaboration with the charity organisation Children do Matter, to create colourful Sicilian-inspired masterpieces, and a special “Make your own cannolo” workshop on Saturday in collaboration with FIC-UK.
SicilyFEST, a Festival of all things Sicilian, a tasty and visual feast, for the stomach as well as the eyes.
FALL in love with SicilyFEST!
