The weekend also includes live cooking demonstrations by renowned chefs and musical performances showcasing Peruvian folklore.
SUMAQ, which means “delicious” in the indigenous language of Quechua is a two day event highlighting the delicacies of the Peruvian culture. The gentle blend of ancient Incan cooking practices and immigrant traditions from Spain, Africa and Japan, is what makes Peruvian cuisine unique and is steadily conquering the interest of everyone around the world. The event’s mission along with Peru’s gastronomic association, APEGA is to help promote Peruvian cuisine and culture.
Event hours are 11am-8pm both Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine.
Tickets may be purchased online through the Cradle of Aviation’s website, $15 for adult and $7 for children (2-12 years old) plus a processing fee. You may also purchase the same day of the event for the same price. Each vendor will sell food between $2-$15. Ticket includes admission to the Cradle of Aviation Museum between 9:30am-5pm.
