0

The 8th Big Bite Northern Mindanao Food Festival officially opened its summer-themed fair in Ayala Malls Centrio to guests at 10 a.m., Friday, March 11, 2022.

The annual gastronomic adventure, which features Northern Mindanao “foodpreneurs”, farmers, artisans, brewers, chefs, and local business owners, is back in action this year with more exhibitors, a bigger partnership with Grab Food, and an eager crowd to #TakeABigBiteAtCentrio2022!

Over the last 8 years, people living in and coming from outside Cagayan De Oro have attended the festival, making a difference economically in the city.

Ayala Malls Centrio and local tourism invite you to this food festival to enjoy its diverse offerings—interactive experiences for the entire family, live music, local flavors – Filipino cuisine combined with different culinary traditions—and discover other homegrown favorites that showcase what Northern Mindanao has to offer!
