The much-anticipated Eat Festival, formerly known as Karachi Eat, set to tantalize taste buds and serenade music lovers as it returns for its 11th edition. The three-day extravaganza, scheduled from January 12 to January 14, will take place at Beach Park in Clifton, promising an unforgettable experience for Karachi’s food enthusiasts and music aficionados.
This annual celebration has become a cornerstone of Karachi’s cultural scene, showcasing a diverse array of sweet and savory delights from over 120 eateries, with a unique focus on empowering small businesses and home chefs.

In a bold move to spotlight emerging musical talent, the festival introduces the Bringing Emerging Artists Together (BEAT) Festival. This musical event designed to provide a platform for Pakistan’s undiscovered musicians, aligning with the festival’s tradition of fostering creativity.
Omer Omari, the CEO of the Eat Festival, expressed, “Just as Karachi Eat provides a launching pad for aspiring chefs, the BEAT aspect aims to do the same for budding musicians. We believe in harnessing the immense potential of Pakistan’s music scene.”
