Attendees at the five-day festival will be able to sample a taste of Belize courtesy Garifuna Flava, an authentic Garifuna restaurant in Chicago. Garifuna Flava’s participation marks Belize’s first appearance at the internationally recognized food and music fest.
Garifuna Flavas is one of 26 newcomers to the event. There will be a total of 73 vendors, including 38 five-day vendors, 22 pop-up restaurants and 13 food trucks, according to Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events.
