Mange, Coma – Eat at Int’l Fest

March 26, 2004

OFFERING food and entertainment from Canada, Chile and nearly every country in between, the International Food Festival will take place April 17 in Coronado.

The festival is put on by the International Association of Women of the Inter-American Institute of Agricultural Sciences as a fundraiser for its social projects.

This year’s main focus is funding a medical center for a group of indigenous people in the Southern Caribbean region of Talamanca. The organization also works to help schools, hospitals and native groups.

“It’s an all-day event,” says Helena Condines, president of the organization. “But you obviously can’t just eat all day, which is why we have lots of great entertainment as well.”

CONDINES stresses that the event has something to offer everyone, from every type of food you can find in the Americas to entertainment for children and adults, including a magic show, dance performances and live music. There will also be a car exhibition, craft fair and book sale.

The festival will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Inter-American Institute of Agricultural Sciences. Admission for adults is ¢300 ($0.70), children under 12 ¢100 ($0.25).

For more information, call 224-8525 (English) or 288-1330 (Spanish).
