You definitely heard about the first edition of the Lagos Grill and Barbecue Festival, and If you didn't attend, the Second Edition of the Lagos Grill and Barbecue Festival will hold this Easter Sunday March 27th 2016. This family event will feature delicious food from 15 Grill & BBQ Joints across Lagos, with the likes of Grills in and out, Farm city’s Grill house, Sean Barbecue, Grind Grill, Lala’s Grill, Kmac Grill, Islander Barbecue, Delicioso Mobile Chefs, Ginger Topas & Grill, Bolielicious, etc, a fun fair for kids and entertainment for all.
Following the success of the maiden edition, The Grind returns with a revised, top-notch event that is set to be even bigger than the previous edition, which was a major success with major highlights
“This second edition will make the first edition look like a test run – We are pulling all stops for the 2016 Lagos Grill and Barbecue Festival which is a fusion of Western style food festivals and authentic Naija grill and BBQ”
Francis Ebie, Chief Coordinator of the event, who is currently attending both the Sydney and Melbourne barbecue festivals in Australia says, the idea is to monitor and observe different ways the barbecue festivals are done in different countries of the world, implement the best experience, infuse it with our own culture and ways of doing things. One of our major objectives is to nurture this event to international standard, considering the huge tourism potentials this event can attract to the host cities
The 2nd Annual Lagos Grill & BBQ Festival will hold at Muri Okunola Park, Victoria Island and this destination will be transformed into a summer style festival with gazebos, comfortable seating areas, cocktail tables and a big stage for the performances. There will be an entertainment host who will keep people entertained and keep the momentum going during entertainment intervals.
A section of the park will be for the kids with interactive games, bouncy castles, rides, video games, arts & craft and play pens.
Adults will not be left out this year, games include who can eat the hottest wings and fastest burger eater contests.
The winners of these contests will go home with great prizes courtesy of the sponsors and organizers
Guests can look forward to entertainment from top musical and dance acts.
This year, we are introducing the Barbecue Guest Challenge, where 6 finalists will showcase their skills during the festival, they will be scored by celebrity judges and the audience. Winners will also go home with fantastic prizes from our sponsors
Come and be a part of this feast of flavors this Easter Sunday, in Lagos.
