Yeh Dil Mange Momos – This year it was the first time that a festival dedicated solely to momos was organised. The idea behind organising the festival was to “create a momo heaven by bringing the best from all over Delhi on one platform. Along with some vibrant entertainment, it’s a celebration and tribute to India’s favourite roadside snack ;like you have never seen before!! Chocolate, Vodka, Tandoori, Afghani, Wheat, Butter and a lot more!! You gotta try ’em all’!!”. If you are a momo lover then you must visit this festival.
Foodistan and Toddyfest – These two festivals come under the larger 10 Head Festival. As the name suggests, there are 10 festivals which are celebrated in one area. This will be the first time that the festival will take place. The food will be prepared by Chef Saby. The Toddyfest is solely dedicated to the alcohol. The idea is to get you nice and drunk. This is one festival which everyone is looking forward to attending.
The Craft Brew Festival – This year it was the first time that the festival was organised, and we must say that the organisers had done a good job. From Ales, Lagers, Irish stouts, Porters or German Hefeweizens and Belgian Wits, the Craft Brew Festival was highly commendable. There was a beer for every kind of enthusiast.
SulaFest – The fest is India’s favourite gourmet music festival. Located in the city of Nashiki, the festival has an ideal setting to just relax and enjoy. Sipping good wine with your people and just relaxing in the late winter sun, the setting is perfect to take a brake from things. Music and drinking wine are not the only activities you will be involved in, wine stompping is one the most popular events that takes place in the festival. Last year the festival upped its ante as there were more than 10,000 people who attended the festival.
