Today I am writing about a Street Foodfest called ‘Schummeltag’ that is happening in Darmstadt starting today, Friday 8th April 2022, until the end of the weekend, i.e., Sunday 10th April 2022. It is a street food fest with many yummy delicacies belonging to different cuisines worldwide. Schummel means ‘ to cheat,’ and Tag is ‘Day’ in German. So, it translates to ‘Cheat day ‘ in German.
As the name says, it is all about some delicious street food to tingle your taste buds. But it has more to offer. There is a sitting place, peppy music, and a fun environment. There is no entry ticket, but one has to buy the food and drinks independently.
All the details about the event are available at
but for my readers, I am posting some important information :

You must fill out the form, send it to the organizers, and take it forward. The opportunity to put up a stall in Darmstadt is not there anymore ( since the fest starts today), but certainly, there is an opportunity to put it up in other locations and, in the future, in Darmstadt too.
Here are some of the foods we tried :
