Best Street Food of Lagos

in the months leading up to the fair, and as part of a robust marketing campaign, Eventful will be asking Lagosians to vote for the best places to get their favourite street treats e.g. suya, designer rice, shawarmas and boli. The people with the highest votes in each category will be invited to the fair. This will be another activity that drives traffic to the event as people will come to eat foods that they usually do not have easy access to, all in one place. It will also be a boost to many small businesses as the winners will be given stalls for free.
