When in Quezon City, where do you go to satisfy your gastronomic cravings? Where do you go to enjoy the urban art scene? Choosing is so challenging with so many newly-opened restaurants and art exhibits that simple events run the risk of being neglected. One example could be the Palette Palate Art Fair held at the Maginhawa StrEat Park last August 1-2.
Maginhawa StrEat is definitely a MUST-visit place for all the foodies out there. It features 11 tenants, four food trucks and seven food containers, each offering different types of cuisine from around the world. From Southeast Asian cuisine to Italian favorites to Benguet Coffee beans– this place is a must for those who want a diverse dining experience. It also happened to be the perfect venue for the Palette Palate Art Fair! The fair thrived in a venue with various dishes offering a myriad of flavors. Despite the heavy rains, the place was jam-packed.
The StrEat Art Fair was brought to us by Maginhawa StrEat in partnership with Katha. It highlighted the works of Geli Balcruz, Yang Barrios, Cynthia Bauzon-Arre, Andrea Dela Cruz, June Digan, Megan Diño, Ella Lama, Ebony Paguia, Alexandra Paredes, Karen Versoza and Gracey Viñas. Like the diverse dishes available in Maginhawa Food Park, the featured artworks were also very diverse. The artists used different mediums—from paper cutting to acrylic—in creating their own art.

Art lovers enjoyed the small pop-up stands where they could get prints, souvenirs and other items from the event’s participating artists.
The Palette Palate Art Fair was definitely a great experience for artists and foodies alike. However, even if the fair is over, you should still visit StrEat Maginhawa Food Park!
