The event will be held on March 17-19 at Las Rocas II beach's El Bambu recreation center, located in Pimentel beach resort area.
The festival expects to delight some 6,000 visitors with seafood treats like ceviche, as well as traditional dishes: arroz con pato (Peruvian-styled rice with duck), chancho al palo (Peruvian-styled roasted pork), among others. Ceviche dishes will cost, on average, S/15 (about US$4.56).
The food fair will also feature presentations of artists dancing to the rhythm of Tondero, Marinera, as well as a Peruvian paso horse show.
On the other hand, festival coordinator Nino Onofre highlighted the role of the food-tourism cluster in spreading culture, local economic development and sustainable trade promotion practices.
Likewise, Pimentel district municipality representative Pedro Carrasco referred to local beaches, which welcome around 100,000 on summer weekends.
"We have an enormous tourist potential, but greater infrastructure is needed to offer visitors better services," he observed.
Carrasco also noted the said municipality supports private initiatives geared towards boosting tourist inflow.
