This year’s 10th annual event will feature more than 70 different dishes from the region and the profit raised from ticket sales and contributions will help support Cambodia’s poverty-stricken children.
Hosted by Pour un Sourire d’Enfant (PSE), a non-profit focused on improving the lives of Cambodian children, the festival is scheduled for April 1 and April 2, 2016, at Olympic Stadium in Phnom Penh. The theme of this year’s festival is solidarity, empathy and love—enabling people to support those less fortunate.
Among the Cambodian dishes that will be showcased are Mam Lahong (fermented paw paw), Taosok Chav (fermented cucumber) and Trei Cchoeur (smoked fish).
In addition to food, the festival will include cultural performances, lucky draw, photography and a concert attended by Cambodian celebrities.
PSE has organized the festival for the past 10 years, raising money to support the destitute children at PSE. This year, the organization expects more than 10,000 people to attend.
Tickets are 12,000 riel, or $3, each and are now available at Olympic Stadium, TOTAL Station, BROWN COFFEE & BAKERY and LOTUS BLANC Restaurant.
