The delicious weekend this year is likely to get bigger and better this year and will have something for you and your family, with the exciting addition of elements like treasure hunt, new restaurants to please the consumer palate, a bigger market zone, two stages featuring some of the most renowned bands and music artistes and a kids zone.

Hindustan Times Imagine Fest, which will run parallel with the Palate fest at Nehru Park, will present a wide range of talks, forums & discussions from world leaders and will act as a perfect platform for speakers and audience to impart knowledge and exchange thoughts on literature, fashion, and art. The other highlights of the fest will include an open air art gallery showcasing Art Buzz, GNAP (Global Nomadic Arts Project) and YAFA (Young Arts for All) presented by Arts4All and book zone for consumers.

The Palate fest festival this year will showcase over 50 stalls by leading names in the culinary space. Foodies will be able to taste and buy many gastronomic delights from the market square.

A food festival is not complete without live music. There will be two live outdoor stages that shall feature some incredible musical talent from the industry, like the bands Zehen, Tarkash, Swarveda, Sumit Singh Duo, Rangreza The Band, Drum Circle, Euphoria and Adil Khan.
