THE Cordilleran food showcase “Mangan Taku” is still in the works, Baguio City Tourism Officer Aloysius Mapalo said on Wednesday.
The food showcase, to be held in partnership with the Department of Tourism Cordillera (DOT-CAR), is currently in the planning phase.
“The initial plan is to hold it at the end of April because it’s the National Food Month,” Mapalo said.
The city is also looking into partnering up with the Department of Agriculture for the planned Cordillera food showcase to highlight Cordilleran produce as well.
However, details have yet to be set in stone.
The city has yet to decide on a place to hold the food fair, which started two years ago in 2019.
One potential location being eyed is Session Road, as it is currently already being closed down on Sundays for various commercial purposes.
Another location that the city is considering is the newly-reopened Rose Garden, but with minimal booths and crowds present.
According to Mapalo, the city will be showcasing the Mangan Taku food fair in a hybrid, partially online mode to allow the observance of health protocols with the conduct of a non-crowd drawing activity.
