What Sets Fast Food Gourmet Apart

Situated in the updated Ex Pagnossin area, Fast Food Gourmet is no ordinary food festival. It occupies a sprawling 5,000 square meters and combines food, entertainment, and retail into a unique blend. The event aspires to be more than just a local market. It aims to put Treviso on the international gastronomic map. Organizers Dream’s Factory have meticulously designed a setting that will adapt to seasonal themes, adding Halloween and Christmas festivities to their roster.

Culinary Showdowns

One of the cornerstone features of the event is a competitive format for food trucks. The opening weekend alone will host an array of award-winning food trucks from across Europe, each vying for the title of the best in their class.

Categories range from the best burger to vegetarian options, promising a delectable range for visitors. Furthermore, these competitions will not be confined to the venue but will be broadcast in a television format.

Beyond Food: A Holistic Experience

Recognizing that a memorable outing involves more than just good food, Fast Food Gourmet offers a rounded experience for visitors. The area will be divided into sections that cater to various interests: music, street art, workshops for children, and even a dedicated space for dogs. Agricultural and bio companies will also set up shops, offering visitors an organic retail experience.


With a lineup of over 100 street artists and specialized zones for children and pets, this festival is poised to be a comprehensive outing for the entire family.

My name is Feuza, but everyone calls me Fuse. I am originally from Brazil and have been traveling all my life, but then I became obsessed with Italy. I launched my TikTok and travel blog in 2021, sharing my Italian adventures and other Southwest Europe travel. I am a member of The International Food Wine Travelers Association (IFWTWA), leaning deeper into travel journalism. I am also a professional photographer and SEO strategist. My style of travel is slow travel. I like finding the oldest cafes and bars in town, and I imagine how it would be to live there. Travel fuels my soul, and I am beyond excited to be a contributor to Live in Italy.
