MAURITIAN OPEN AIR FESTIVAL: PARTY LIKE A MAURITIAN

Once a year in Tottenham Hale Park, thousands gather for the annual Mauritian Open Air Festival. It is open to the general public, but it is a time where Mauritian culture is celebrated through traditional Mauritian food and music.

Every year they bring down famous Sega music artists; this year (Sunday 3rd August) it was Laura Beg, Alain Ramanisum and Jean Claude. This year was bitter sweet as this was Jean Claude’s very last time performing ever, with fans from all ages cheering him on and showing him so much affection. Alain and his wife Laura also did a couple of their most famous songs such as Tik Tiké and Li Tourner which is a crowd favourite every year.

As well as the music, there is also a funfair which is adult and kid friendly, where you will find attractions such as bumper cars, bouncy castles and mini rollercoasters. Traditional foods such as biriyani, gatuex piments, roti and dhaal pourri were all served in tents along with cold beverages like Phoenix beer and alouda.

This annual event is one to celebrate the multicultural and bi-lingual people of Mauritius and educate others on how to party like a Mauritian. It’s family orientated and suitable for anyone, Mauritian or not, to have a fantastic time like they do every year without fail.

Tickets are usually sold at local Mauritian shops listed on the website and also can be bought there on the day but prices will be slightly higher.
