Zanjan will host 13 countries from the 1st to the 3rd of May in 2018 at the Fourth International ECO – Silk Road Food Festival.
Competitors from 13 countries including the Republic of Azerbaijan, China, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Bulgaria and Turkey have applied to partake in the event.
Food as an attraction takes the tourists closer the life of the local people, also, food is rooted in the civilization and the beliefs of people in every region and in fact, it is a kind of revival of long-standing traditions in different areas especially in the Silk Road area, which we hope will be able to revive.
The main focus of the festival is food, but various workshops and traditional handicrafts exhibits associated with cooking and sightseeing excursions are amongst side section programs embedded in the timeline of the event.
On a high plain, surrounded by stark, eroded hills, Zanjan also makes a base for wider explorations with the architectural wonder of Soltaniyeh, the subterranean delights of the Katale-Khor caves, colorful mountains and the UNESCO-registered Takht-e Soleiman ruins are nearby.
