2) The Onion Market (Bern, Switzerland)
 
The Onion Market is regarded as the biggest folk festival on the Switzerland's capital's calendar. The festival officially begins at 6 a.m, but the people start to feel the smell of soup even before that, when the first onion soups starts to boil.

This is not the only chocolate festival in the world, but it is regarded as one of the very best.

4) Blue Food Festival (Bloody Bay, Tobago)
 
It has been 18 years that this festival has started in the coastal village of Bloody Bay, on the Caribbean island of Tobago.
 
The festival focuses on the dishes made of 'Dasheen' which is a root plant of the taro variety and the festival gets its name from the dasheen itself.
 
There is live music, limbo dancing and rum stalls which makes the festival even more happening.
 
 
 
5) Pizzafest (Naples, Italy)
 
Pizzafest is a dream come true for every Pizza lover, when Napoli's Lungomare Caracciolo area becomes a pizza village with 500,000 visitors who consume more than 100,000 pizzas of every kind.
