Bringing together more than eighty foodie initiatives and live music over one weekend, Degusto takes place this year on May 25 and 26 in Carrasco.

Chefs, growers and foodtrucks offer you a wide variety of foods and beverages including Uruguayan classics like chivitos (our piled-high steak sandwiches), parrilla (Uruguay’s infamous barbecue), pasta (another Uruguayan favourite), vegan and vegetarian food, specialist coffee, homemade icecream, organic products and craft beers.

Choose from lunch, dinner or “merienda” (Uruguayan high tea). The fair is open from midday each day.

There are raffles, talks and cooking classes for adults and children. The kiddies can be parked in “children’s zones” with special activities and games especially for them.
