Every November, El Virrey Park in Bogota hosts the AlimentArte Food Festival, one of the most important gastronomic events in Colombia.
In this setting, lovers of good food can meet outdoors to enjoy more than 70 gastronomic offerings, among which stand out new restaurants selected according to high quality criteria. Of course, there’s also a place for eateries that are already classics in the Colombian capital.
In addition, the festival allows new experiences such as beer gardens and cocktail areas. It should be noted that it is a pet-friendly event, where all people can enter with their pets. The entrance time is from 11:00 to 19:00.
A portion of the sales goes to the social programs of “Fundacion Corazon Verde”, which supports police officers and their families who were victims of violence and the armed conflict in Colombia. In past events, 450 orphans of police officers have benefited.
In the 19 editions to date, the AlimentArte platform has provided more than 370 shelters, supported around 8,000 children in primary and secondary school, and provided psychological support to more than 7,800 relatives of police officers who have been victims of violence in Colombia.
