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.
