10th Europe on the Fork Festival

The beginning of June in Wroclaw brings an annual cooking celebration: the Europe on the Fork festival.

The European feast was first held on 4th June 2009, when Wroclaw celebrated the twentieth anniversary of the first free parliamentary election in Poland. The residents of Wroclaw have embraced it so much that it is now a regular feature in the city’s calendar. The patron of the festival is Robert Makłowicz. A special programme will be dedicated to Piotr Bikont – the originator of the festival, who died last year.

This year’s edition will begin on Wednesday 30th May with a fair of European and regional products, which brings a variety of delicacies for you to taste and buy from all parts of Europe. On Friday 1st June, the Municipal Public Library will invite the youngest gourmets to take part in workshops and meetings with authors of cookbooks on the Children’s Day and Night with a Food Theme in the Library – the meeting will include an overnight stay, shared dinner and breakfast in the library! On the same day, a foodie cinema review Cinematic Europe on the Fork will begin in Wroclaw’s Nowe Horyzonty cinema and will last till Sunday 3rd June. The review will begin with a show and an open-air event on the roof of Hotel Monopol.

Also on Saturday, the Food Truck and Fine Beer Invasion – a two-day rally of 30 food trucks with the best foods and a choice of best beers brewed by cult craft breweries – will begin in the Mieszczański Brewery. It is a real fiesta for streetfood lovers! The programme offers also many attractions for families, including exhibitions, concerts and workshops. Concerts will also be held in the Wroclaw Market Square – the main day of the festival will be concluded with a performance of the Wroclaw Respect Orchestra, and the star of the evening will be KAYAH. The repertoire will include only hits!

On Sunday 3rd June, the Freedom Picnic will be held at the Pergola near the Centennial Hall. This family event will include a feast on the grass, outdoor attractions for the youngest kids, concerts, and many more features.

The 10th Europe on the Fork Festival will end unusually on Monday 4th June, which is the Freedom Day.
