All invited to first ever Sandakan Food Festival

23rd May, 2017

By JAMES LEONG

SANDAKAN: The first Sandakan Food Festival (SFF), themed Oceans, Land and Forests, will serve a culinary selection that is uniquely Sandakan, and Sabahan; gathering traditions from Chinese, Malay, Kadazan- Dusun, and more ethnic styles of cooking.

The festival will be spread over eight days, from Aug 26 to Sept 2 and hopes to attract both local visitors throughout Sabah as well as international food experts.

The festival is organised by Sandakan Tourism Association (STAN) with the support of Sandakan Good Food Club (comprising of a mixed bunch of Sandakan food enthusiasts) as a community-driven, not-for-profit effort to promote the town of Sandakan. Also involved are State Tourism, Culture and Environment Ministry, Sabah Tourism Board, Sandakan Municipal Council, and community leaders of Sandakan.

The core objectives of SFF are: to bring together culinary stakeholders from all sectors together for a collective showcase event; to use the festival platform to invite and introduce our varied cuisines to an international audience and media in attendance; to encourage the local communities to rediscover their food heritage and to develop pride in its diversity; and, to take the opportunity to catalogue the breadth of food and produce choices available in Sabah, in a comprehensive manner.

The festival village location will be at the open car park next to Yu Yuan Secondary School in Bandar Kim Fung. SFF is now calling for all Sandakan (first priority) and Sabah (wider priority) food industry people to produce unique local cuisine and creations to participants and make this a culinary showcase in Sandakan.

SFF will be seeking F&B industry vendors from full restaurants to street food stalls, with relevant licences. The registration process will be by personal application via forms, followed by committee selection, as there is limited space and already strong demand. The SFF committee reserves the rights to select based on the key criteria of authenticity/uniqueness of the cuisine, reputation of F&B outlet and other points.

Rental of the spaces will be split into Block A – 4 days (26th – 29th AUG) and Block B – 3 days (Aug 31 – Sep 2), with the option of renting for the full 8 days also available. (The 30th AUG is a changeover day.) Prices will start from RM120 for a 5’ x 10’ space.

SFF is projecting audience numbers of over 500 on weekdays and 1,000 to 1,500 persons on weekends & public holiday.
