LAHORE: Following the successful launch of the new season of Coca-Cola Food & Music Festival in Lahore and after catering to more than 350,000 food lovers in sold-out events in Islamabad, Multan, Faisalabad and Karachi, the biggest #PartyinThePark is all set to return to Lahore for the second time as the season finale takes place at Lake City.
CokeFest Lahore promises to offer all of the season’s freshest flavors ranging from a diversity of traditional Desi to Continental, Asian (Chinese, Japanese, Thai), Turkish/Lebanese and Italian. The selection of cuisines for #CokeFest has been curated based on the reviews and feedback of the extremely active members of the popular food portal “Foodies ‘R Us”, indeed confirming that the selection is based on popular choice and opinions of some of Pakistan’s most passionate and authentic foodies.
#CokeFest also acknowledges that there is nothing quite like a home cooked meal; for which reason the festival celebrates home-based chefs who make up a significant part of the #CokeFest, bringing with them a range of their multi-generational secret family recipes, soul food and unique flavors.
Speaking at the event, Rizwan U. Khan, General Manager Coca-Cola Pakistan & Afghanistan Region, stated “Coca-Cola Pakistan has always been the pioneer in supporting causes that are dear to the hearts of our people, taking the lead and exploring new horizons that no one else has ventured to explore. With this edition of Coke Food and Music Festival, we are expanding this one of its kind platform to five cities across the nation. We are extremely excited and looking forward to welcome our guests to provide world-class entertainment through quality music and food for everyone.”
