There were about 100 booths, displaying various dishes from around the country and additional stalls showing textiles and handicrafts. It was an event that many residents of Vientiane and tourists didn’t want to miss the chance of sampling the best dishes of all the provinces of Lao, at one convenient location.

The Lao Food Festival also included a few vendors from Thailand presenting food and products from the Esan region.
