Fairfield City's Culinary Carnivale brings Latin delicacies to Fairfield streets

Fairfield’s sixth annual Culinary Carnivale was held in Fairfield on Saturday, celebrating good food, good entertainment and family in Spanish and Latin American style. See all the pictures from the event here.

Hungry visitors beat the rain to enjoy Fairfield’s Culinary Carnivale, tasting a delicious range of Spanish and Latin American food. 

The traditional Asado (barbeque) was so popular that this year it was extended to a whole 10 metre parrilla.

Beef and pork choripan and pork ribs served with chimichurri and seasoned beef spare ribs were cooked to perfection for a mouthwatering lunch.

Spanish seafood paella, empanadas, and South American sweets such as caramel dulce de leche and churros (with chocolate dipping sauce), gelato, and freshly squeezed fruit juices sweetened with sugar cane juice were just some of the other tastes available.

And of course when fed and happy, visitors enjoyed the Latin voice of C Major, Fairfield’s own The Voice contestant and now a successful musician and performer.

C Major was a big hit, taking to the stage with The Majorettes and his band as just one of a number of performers. 

Victor Valdes and his Real Mexico, Batucuda Brasil, drumming group Comparsa Yauguru, Tierra Colombiana, Latin Mystique, Latin Heat Rugby League (pass the ball competition) and Dauntless Movement Crew kept visitors entertained throughout the day.
