There is no arguing the fact that Bole reigns supreme above and beyond other street foods in The Garden City of Port Harcourt.

There is no way you will be resident in The Garden City without being a lover of the king of street foods.

In fact, if you’ve ever visited Port Harcourt and you were unable to taste Bole, consider your visit inconclusive.

Port Harcourt City, the capital of Rivers state, the oil state, it is not just home to oil. It is also home to various variety of cultures and delicacies. One of such delicacy is the Bole.

Bole is a combination of yam/plantain roasted with charcoal, eaten with berbecued fish and tomato, pepper, onion with ample red oil sauce. Depending on the taste of the buyer, utazi leaf can be added to it.

The way that Bole is loved in The Garden City, has earned it its own festival. The Bole Festival started in 2016 and this year’s edition is sure to be outstanding.
This year’s Bole Festival is tagged “Our taste, our culture”, it promises to be a time to eat, play, dance, enjoy good music from Port Harcourt’s finest, connect and network.

Scheduled to hold on the Saturday, the 3rd day of August 2019 at Obi Wali International Conference Centre, it should be one of the events you don’t want to miss as it promises a lot, especially meet-up for young people.

This gathering of Port Harcourt’s Bole lovers will not be bolefied as there will also be other vendors at the event with different goods and services on display.

It will be an awesome experience, an awesome opportunity to experience one of the biggest food events in Nigeria.
