Eat Street

The restaurants on the South Causeway in New Smyrna Beach, called “Eat Street” will host The Festival of the Nations – A Global Food Fair from July 28 through August 8. The festival involves multiple eateries honoring the cooking styles, classic dishes and entertainment of 20 countries and culinary regions.

Global Food Fair passports are available at each participating restaurant and online at The passport lists all participating restaurants and their adopted counties. Each restaurant has adopted two counties during the 10-day festival with one country being honored during the first five days and the second country being honored during the second five days. Guests will get their passport “stamped” by the host restaurant for every country visited during the event. Guests also have the chance to win “Free Dinner for Two for a Year” by completing entries every time they visit a country. The entries are located at each host restaurant.

In addition to special menus and dishes honoring the adopted countries, many restaurants also offer cooking demonstrations, special wine pairings, decorations and staff trained in the adopted country’s language. You can get more details on the Eat Street website.
