Lycian Food Festival in Kalkan - Saturday 8th July 2017 PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 05 July 2017

2nd Lycian Food Festival in Kalkan

Reminder and update 5th July: KTLN is happy to announce that the Lycian Food Festival is back.  It will take place on Saturday 8th July 2017 in the harbour area of Kalkan.

For a number of reasons the festival didn't take place in 2016 but we suspect that many people will welcome its return.  The last time the festival was held was on 3rd June 2015 and it was a huge success.  You can read our report here.

During the day there will be many stalls where you will be able to sample some of Kalkan's finest cuisine, including lots of traditional Turkish food.  There will also be entertainment from local dancers and musicians.  Plus in the evening it is planned to hold a concert down at the harbour.

The serious business of the day (if you can call it that) will be a competition between a number of Kalkan chefs who will be trying to impress the judges with their culinary skills.  Fancy being a judge?

Below: The 2015 Lycian Food Festival was immensely popular.

Judging the finest Kalkan food
The festival organisers are looking for a non-Turkish visitor or resident to join the panel of judges so if you feel up to the task of eating great food and giving your honest opinion then contact us and tell us briefly why you would like to be a judge.  You must be over 18 years of age. 

We will look at all submissions and make our recommendation to the orgnisers as to who should join the panel of judges.  Click here to apply to be a judge. Update: Judges have now been selected so please don't apply.

[Editor: Having been a judge myself I can tell you it's a difficult job to pick the winners].

If you are going to be in Kalkan on Saturday 8th July make a note in your diary not to miss this fantastic event.  Food - it's what Kalkan does best.  Make sure you get a taste of Kalkan's finest.

Update: We are informed that at 11.30 the Lycian Food Festival will kick off with a procession from the old Belediye office (on the Thursday market street) down to the harbour.  During the day from around noon until 17.00 there will be lots of free food and drink to sample although please bear in mind some things may have to be paid for.

At 21.30 the festival will come to a conclusion with a music concert held at the harbour.  Enjoy!
