On September 26th and 27th, the second gastronomic festival, “Urban Picnic 2.0”, was held in Shevchenko Park.
The organizers (event-agency “Sentoza”) explain the purpose of the event: “We want to see in Kharkiv a culture of street food, to make people not afraid of buying food on the street. That must be not only belyashes or chebureks on the iron table near the metro entrance, but full, tasty, healthy foods, as well as the opportunity to spend a day outdoors in the company of friends and family, enjoying the holiday atmosphere!”
For two days, leading restaurants and cafes, along with amateurs, were cooking delicious meals, delighting residents of Kharkiv and its guests.
The Picnic had more than 25 participating restaurants, lounge-area with puffs, garden furniture, rugs, pallets, a free open-air cinema, children’s area, games area with table football, badminton, and a large Jenga game. The excellent mood was also created by live music.
