The McAllen Chamber of Commerce and area chefs are getting ready for the 13th Annual International Food Festival. The event is planned for Tuesday, January 21, 2014 and will be held at the McAllen Convention Center from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The theme for this year is “Tour Around the World”. Come and taste fine & traditional cuisine from several McAllen and Rio Grande Valley restaurants. With spring parties, weddings and graduations around the corner, this will be a great opportunity to sample food from seve...ral restaurants and bakeries that may provide catering services.
The Festival will offer an exciting opportunity for restaurants and caterers to showcase the many delicacies from their menus and promote their businesses. Last year’s event featured over thirty five restaurants serving sample portions of main course items such as Prime Rib, shrimp, Mexican food, pasta, coffee, desserts and much more.
A group of highly talented and recognized Chefs will integrate the panel of judges who will once again select the recipients of the Best of Show Award in the two different participating categories. The public attending the event will also have the opportunity to participate in selecting their favorite restaurant for the coveted “People’s Choice Award”.
It is sure to be an evening of international cuisine and entertainment for the entire family. Tickets will be $15 and can be purchased at the Chamber. Free access for Children under 10.
