Fantastic news for Buenos Aires foodies, and by foodie I mean anyone that knows that most of life’s greatest pleasures come in the form of carbohydrates. Start September off right by checking out the first edition of Apetito Festival Gourmet – a food festival taking place in the Hipodromo de Palermo where for the first time in carb history the best pizzerias and breweries in Argentina will come together to bring you something different to spice up your weekend.
This Saturday (September 3rd) and Sunday the 4th, the country’s top pizza masters will be doing what they do best from 11 AM to 7 PM. There will be 22 food trucks distributed throughout the festival for your eating enjoyment, and the best part is entrance is FREE so you can save your money for actual food. Keep an eye out for desserts, ice-cream and coffee too.
‘Apetito’ will take place around one of Hipodromo de Palermo biggest Horse Racing events (it’s coincidentally the institution’s 140th anniversary) so apparently you will also be able to get in on some horse-themed fun too with events including a horse parade, a showcase of horse sculptures by visual artists, and a runway show.
Horses are great, but you had us a pizza. It’s good to have options though.
Av. del Libertador 4101
