It is the month of love, and love of food and crafts is highlighted at the Khmer Crafts & Food Festival (KCFF) for 2019. Who is up for the event?
The Festival will be held on February 23, 2019 (Saturday) from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m., and it will be held at Street 113 and Street 330, which is right next to the Toul Sleng Museum.
Khmer Crafts & Food Festival 2019
This is the third year that the festival is celebrated, and its goal is to promote Khmer culture, as well as the products that are proudly Cambodian made. A number of original artworks are also showcased, as well as tons of food.
The Festival aims to create a market for enterprises that support locals, and businesses which are locally run as well. That way, they have a chance to expand their customer base, and get some exposure. This is a great way to #SupportLocal providers and open their doors to valuable networking opportunities.
This year, there are more than 60 vendors who are participating, and several fun competitions are expected. Workshops are also available at the event.
The event is fully FREE of charge.

About the Organizer: Villageworks
According to the pamphlet,
Villageworks™ is a social enterprise in Cambodia supporting marginalized communities in Phnom Penh and Kampong Thom province. Through the production and sale of handicraft products, we aim to increase opportunities for disabled people and women in rural areas and to create an environment that prevents them from becoming the victims of trafficking and abuse.
Villageworks is more than handicrafts-the purpose is really to build the lives of the villagers. Behind every piece of work, you get the whole person and their family, more than what you see, more than the hands that made the product. Here, we invite you to join us and engage in building lives. Together we can help villagers break free from their poverty cycle, and find hope in life.
