EatDrinkFestival is an annual event that convenes thousands of foodies to partake in a unique culinary experience. EatDrinkFestival is organized by Eat.Drink.Lagos, Lagos’ premier food and drink guide. Festival attendees are invited to enjoy sips and bites presented by some of the best chefs, restaurants, and street food vendors in Lagos. Now in its fifth year, #EatDrinkFestival is recognized as a highlight in the social calendar for visitors and residents in Lagos.

EatDrinkFestival will take place on December 28th and 29th in the heart of Lagos Island, opposite the Federal Ministry of Justice, Marina Road, Lagos Island. The event’s organizers and vendors will transform Lagos Island into a food lover’s paradise with a variety of offerings, notably including celebrity Chef Fregz, and his much anticipated Fregz a Porter diffusion line. Other delights to be expected are craft beer from Igbadun Breweries, and Nigerian-style pasta from Unilag’s favourite street vendor, Korede Spaghetti. Guests will be treated to live DJ sets throughout the event, and the festival will culminate in a big dance party headlined by Afro-House Queen Niniola.

EatDrinkFestival is sponsored by Sterling Bank, a prominent full-service national commercial bank in Nigeria.
