Cartagena Cake Festival 2023

Cartagena Cake Festival 2023

In December, when the sea breeze mixes with festive joy, Cartagena dresses up to welcome the 35th edition of the Cake Festival. This annual event is much more than a gastronomic celebration; it is a culinary journey through the traditional flavors that have defined Cartagena over the years.


The Cake Festival, which coincides with the peak tourist season, transforms the streets of Cartagena into a vibrant feast of music, dance, and cultural events. However, the real protagonist of the celebration is the cake in all its shapes and flavors. From the classic rice cake to bolder options like cassava, chickpea, or chicken cake, there’s something to satisfy every palate.


Each cake has its own history and tradition, passed down through family recipes that have endured generation after generation. During the festival, visitors have the unique opportunity to immerse themselves in this rich culinary diversity. The rice cake, soft and full of flavor, is an unmissable treat. The yucca cake, with its unique texture, will transport you to the roots of Cartagena cuisine. And of course, the chicken pot pie, juicy and seasoned to perfection, is a dining experience not to be missed.


From December 1st to 25th, enjoy this great festival of traditional cakes of the region in various places in Cartagena.


While enjoying the pastries, take the opportunity to explore the beauty of Cartagena. Stroll through the charming Old Town, relax on our white-sand beaches, or immerse yourself in local history at nearby museums.
