It’s off to the city garden we go

After last year’s success of the Let’s Go to the Garden summer event run by the Municipality of Nicosia for all those who won’t be escaping the heat of the capital, the Nicosia Municipal Garden will once again host a row of events as of tonight until the end of the month.

The month-long party in the park will kick-off at 6pm. Lately, Fridays in the garden have been pretty much given over to the Fork Food Market. So come down to the garden and grab a burger, a pulled-pork dish, a Thai vegetarian wrap, a crunchy Churro, a slice of velvet cake or some other street foods that take your fancy – just make sure you get there before 11pm when the kitchens will close up shop.

But eating isn’t all that is on the schedule. At 7pm honorary certificates to graffiti artists who took part in last year’s garden events will be handed out. Also, there will be a book exhibition with 20,000 books – from best sellers to educational books – on sale from €1.

But what would any kind of party in a park be without music? Never fear, a DJ set under the stars will also be there.

Tomorrow, things take a different form in the garden, as there is an addition to the programme this year with a pop-up wine bar from 6pm until 11pm. While you are sipping on your wine, enjoy a photography shoot with models from the Diva Models agency.

The book exhibition will also be on, so any books you miss out on today will – hopefully – still be there for you to grab tomorrow.

A festival with live music, book exhibitions, pop-up wine bar, food and lots more. Nicosia Municipal Garden. July 8-30, Fridays and Saturdays. 7pm-10pm. Free. Tel: 22-797192
