Hungry anyone? Wondering what to eat in Eilat? The Eilat Food Festival, an annual tradition, offers visitors three days of food tastings at dozens of food carts along the northern promenade. The event entrance to the festival is free of charge, and we recommend you arrive on an empty stomach!

The festival affords visitors the opportunity to taste dozens of dishes, including sandwiches and desserts, as well as alcoholic drinks. All the food carts are located in the same area, so visitors can easily test out restaurant after restaurant to see what local eateries have to offer. For three consecutive nights, visitors can taste dishes from well-known Eilat restaurants, chef's restaurants, and fast food places, against the enthralling beauty of the Gulf of Eilat and the Red Sea. The carts feature all types of dishes – meat, fish, sandwiches, and pizzas – including decadent desserts, boutique beers, cocktails, and special chef's dishes.

Between bites, visitors may enjoy the many musical performances by some of Israel's leading artists, including afternoon shows by pop stars beloved by Israeli kids to live performances for adults at night. The performances are free of charge and the dishes offered at the food carts are generally sold at low prices.

Visitors to the Eilat Food Festival can also enjoy everything else the city has to offer during their stay. During the day, the beaches are an obvious option. And if you need a fix of adrenalin, several extreme water sports are available all along the Red Sea shore. Within the city, you can shop for virtually anything without paying VAT as well as enjoy attractions suitable to the entire family. And don't forget to leave room in your tummy for the evening meal!
