Karachi Eat may have gotten off to a rainy start, but its organisers are taking measures to ensure that we get to enjoy the much-anticipated food fest to the fullest.
Anticipating more rain in the coming few days, they have decided to postpone the festival till next weekend.
Karachi Eat will now be held from January 20-22 at Frere Hall.
The organisers announced the new dates in a Facebook post:
“Ladies and gentlemen, the management of Karachi Eat is incredibly grateful to you for being such an amazing support for Karachi Eat 2017 despite the very wet weather. As many of you are aware, in spite of many people braving the rain, we were compelled to call off Day 1 of Karachi Eat 2017 due to the unexpected downpour.

We at CKO Event Architecture have always prided ourselves on only ever delivering the very best to the public. Given the unpredictable nature of the weather, we have therefore decided it would be in the best interests of all the vendors, participants, and the public of Karachi that the complete event be rescheduled to the following weekend. We had initially announced that the Festival would be back on Sunday morning; however, with the rainy weather showing no signs of abating, we have decided to postpone the event in entirety to the weekend of Friday 20th January.
The Festival will now be taking place for three full days as planned initially. The revised timings and dates will be as follows:
Friday 20th January 4:30pm 10:30pm Saturday 21st January 12pm to 10:30pm Sunday 22nd 12noon to 10:30pm
We are truly sorry for any inconvenience that this might have caused to anyone. We thank you for all the support and we hope to see you all again!”
