Guest Chefs & Bartenders of 2017
Restaurants, bars and cafes
We gather amazing cafes, restaurants and bars to do the festival together, to get over 8.000 visitors (2016) up from their couches and out having a great time!
Having guests for whom the ingredients are new lets them experiment with them in a fresh way, bringing new ideas to the table! Amazing local produce gets to the limelight when a great bunch of chefs cook with them!
Official partner hotels right in the center!
RADISSON BLU MARINA PALACE HOTEL and ORIGINAL SOKOS HOTEL HAMBURGER BÖRS are our partner hotels for the event. They house our fantastic guests for the week as well as hungry and interested people joining the festival in Turku. Great locations in the center make them a must stay on your visit in Turku.
Food & Fun Turku 2017 is an official event in the Suomi Finland 100 year centennial program. We are proud to celebrate Finland and Finnish food culture as well as be a part in developing it in the coming years!
Great chefs and great food
We invite professionals from around the world to join us in the festival. They collaborate with the local chefs and make a special menu for the week, same price in all the restaurants so people can just hop around and eat a couple menus during the week!
Cocktail culture in Finland is blooming and we feel it is our responsibility to do our best to help it grow! Lastyear over 35 new drinks were sold around Turku with people trying new things and getting a taste for nice handcrafted drinks.
