At FOOD ZURICH, everything goes as long as it stimulates the taste buds: Just like the infinite number of different tastes, the sky is the limit for the festival’s more than 100 events. On eleven days, the festival celebrates culinary culture in all of its facets – from street food and slow food to haute cuisine.
It’s where experimental Swiss dishes meet traditional recipes and international trends while seasoned restaurants serve it up at surprising new venues. Its rich program with contributions from up-and-coming chefs and restaurateurs invites guests to hands-on experiences, to discover new tastes and discuss the latest scientific innovations.
In the first edition of FOOD ZURICH in 2016, more than 200 producers, restaurateurs and retailers were host to 62,000 visitors. The festival is now entering its third round and will take place from 24 May to 3 June, 2018, throughout the city on the Limmat River and in the Zurich region.
