The Abuja Plantain Festival is a food show that brings plantain lovers together and is powered by Calabarboyfoodie, a food review blog brand with an energetic social media fan base passionate about amplifying the culture of food and drink businesses in Nigeria and around Africa.
This festival is a yearly event that attracts thousands of plantain lovers and food vendors with the aim of improving the service, production capacity, and experiences of restaurants and food businesses in Nigeria and Africa.
We are currently in two cities – London and Abuja and we plan to expand to over 20 cities across the world.
The positive impact of our festivals has been experienced by both young and old people who make new friends at the event, and vendors who get new clients from the festival.
Attending Abuja Plantain Festival in 2019 was a good choice because I met amazing people and had so much fun! Wouldn’t miss any event for the world.
The lockdown had drained my energy, but attending the festival was a great experience, I made a lot of friends, in fact I learnt how to prepare a variety of plantain dishes
I went as a vendor, and we sold out our dishes, I even took part in some competitions, I had an amazing time at the event.
Bringing a community of plantain lovers together, to experience the greatness of Plantain dishes and share great moments together across the Globe, is what I envision.
