Event Description:
The annual Cyprus Food and Wine Festival in Marrara is all set to welcome souvlaki-loving families this September. Parents can sip on a goblet of wine while the kids let off steam by taking part in energetic displays of Greek and Cypriot dancing. This event has been running since 1974, and the Cyprus community takes enormous pride in creating a fun, friendly and culturally enlightening event for the wider public. A Greek band will be coming up from Sydney to play a few tunes that will be sure to have new cultural converts smashing plates in no time. As soon as you walk into the venue you will be overwhelmed by the tantalising aroma of market stalls selling home-made Cypriot cuisine. Souvla is a deliciously juicy dish involving lamb and chicken on the spit marinated in native herbs and spices. If that hasn’t got your taste-buds tingling, perhaps you would like to experiment with few slices of Loukaniko sausage or a traditional Cypriot dessert.

Wine is also a key player at this lively community event. There will be a cultural tent providing information on the history of Commandaria wine, fragments of which have been found in archaeological digs. It is thought to be the oldest wine on earth. On the night of the festival, guests will be able to buy this ancient varietal by the bottle or the glass. While you enjoy a tipple, the little ones can amuse themselves with one of the many rides or amusements on offer. No need to book and entry is free!
