Sabores y Saberes 2018
San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico invited Paducah to participate in a collaboration of UNESCO Creative Cities during the first artisanal and gastronomic festival, "Sabores y Saberes," February 2-5, 2018.
The new festival aims to promote local gastronomic and artisanal expressions and global connections in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network through cultural exchange and international collaboration. The event contemplates the transversal connection between gastronomy and crafts and folk art with the participation of Creative Cities, including Icheon, South Korea (Crafts & Folk Art); Ensenada, Baja California (Gastronomy); Paducah, USA (Crafts & Folk Art); and Popayan, Colombia (Gastronomy).
A Paducah delegation of local artists, educators and leaders participated in sharing artisanal knowledge, "Saberes," and gastronomic flavors, "Sabores" throughout the four core sections of the event: gastronomic tastings, Crafts & Gastronomy Expo-Fair, thematic reunion of the Creative Cities and cultural exchange.
