Restaurant Day

Restaurant Day is a worldwide food carnival and a movement that allows anyone to set up a restaurant, café or a bar.

During the first five years from May 2011 to May 2016 Restaurant Day was celebrated four time a year. From May 2016 every day is Restaurant Day and pop-up restaurants can be opened and local food carnivals can happen anytime and anywhere: at your home, at the office, on a street corner, in your garden or inner courtyard, at a park, or on the beach – only your imagination is the limit.

Restaurant Day’s birthday is celebrated annually with a big global food carnival every third Saturday of May.

The idea is simple, really. On a Restaurant Day anyone can set up a restaurant, anywhere. This means ordinary people get to play chefs and sommeliers for a change resulting a whole lot of fun and food plus wonderful meetings and memories, even odd ones.
