First-Ever Kazakh-Turkish Cuisine Fair Held in Astana as Part of Environmental Campaign

Astana, renowned for its commitment to environmental sustainability, is currently hosting the extensive "Taza Kazakhstan" environmental campaign, setting the standard for cleanliness and orderliness.

Astana’s akimat organized the inaugural Kazakh-Turkish Cuisine Fair, as reported by the official website of the capital’s administration.

Under the auspices of the Baikonir district akimat, the fair showcased a delectable array of Turkish culinary delights, including the renowned bureks, simits, and cheese pies. Additionally, traditional Kazakh delicacies such as baursaks, kurts, cheese, and tea were generously distributed to residents attending the event.


Taking place in Ataturk Park, the fair welcomed distinguished guests including Mustafa Kapucu, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Turkish Republic to Kazakhstan, along with other Turkish representatives and officials from the Astana city administration. The active participation of Baikonur district residents and youthful volunteers further enriched the event.

This culinary celebration is just one facet of Astana’s comprehensive “Kieli Meken” week, dedicated to extensive cleaning efforts around the city’s monuments and surrounding areas. Subsequent weeks will see initiatives focused on tree planting, whitewashing of plantings, and the cleaning and beautification of yards belonging to veterans and nursing homes. The campaign will culminate in a concerted effort to clear debris from the areas surrounding reservoirs, rivers, and lakes during the final week dubbed “Moldir Bulak.”

Astana’s commitment to environmental stewardship and community engagement underscores its dedication to creating a cleaner, greener, and more vibrant urban landscape for residents and visitors alike.
