Last week, our team participated in the 15th Festival of Cultural Traditions and National Cuisine annually organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan with participation of the foreign diplomatic missions operating in Tashkent.

Thousands of people attended this colorful event, where they could try national dishes and learn about customs, traditions and tourist opportunities in more than 30 states. The EU Delegation staff offered the festival visitors various snacks, ice cream and ice tea that were quite popular on that hot day. Our well decorated stand, team spirit and cheerful mood attracted a lot of people, who were willingly purchasing our food.

The EU Delegation was happy to donate all money (UZS 3.500.000) earned during the Festival to charity. Namely, the proceeds will be used to support local orphanages and schools attended by children with special needs.
