Mauritius Open Air Festival 2018
July 15, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This summer sees the return of the annual Mauritius Open Air Festival (MOAF), taking place on Sunday 15th July 2018 at the renowned Trent Park, London.
Now in its ninth year, this one’s set to be the biggest event to date!
As the UK’s largest exhibition for Mauritius, well-established eateries, bars and businesses are represented, making MOAF the ultimate Mauritian showcase.
Welcoming families and friends to soak in the sounds and tastes from the beautiful island, widely referred to ‘Paradise on Earth’, Mauritius Open Air Festival invites you to indulge and experience the exotic and vibrant culture from this small island situated off the south coast of Africa.
Once occupied by the Dutch, and the home of the famous Dodo, the Republic of Mauritius has grown to become a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural society, with national dishes drawing influence from Chinese, French and Indian cuisine.
Mauritius is known for its delicious street food. To get a small taste of this, MOAF will be hosting local UK businesses who will be on-hand cooking up some of the best dishes Mauritius has to offer.
So whether you want to try some “Dhal Pouri” (Indian style flat bread stuffed with ground yellow split peas, served with a bean curry and chutney), or feast on a selection of “Gajaks” (deep fried snacks such as potato fritters and samosas), there is a little something for everyone!
MOAF offers up a perfect time to bask in the atmosphere with a bellyful of food, enjoying the sounds of Sega (Mauritian music) while you relax with a cold bottle of Mauritius’ award-winning lager, Phoenix beer.
Once you’ve experienced this home away from home, it’s guaranteed to become a firm date in your summer calendar. With great food, live music from well-decorated Mauritian artists and entertainment for the whole family, the Mauritius Open Air Festival represents the warm friendly culture and everything that makes Mauritius a gem of the Indian Ocean.
