Mela Food

Rådhusplassen: MELAarena   

Flavors from all over the world at Mela.

Fragrant pots and grilled kebabs, sticky sweets and dishes you've never tasted before: the food on Melafestivalen guaranteed to give you more mouth-watering experiences.

Here you will find flavors from all over the world, so what we recommend is to arrive with an empty stomach and then taste yourself from country to country, continent to continent - and from dish to dish. On the festival grounds there are also several dining tents where you can take a breather on the ground and enjoy the food. What could be better than great music and delicious food?
