Perfect year-round weather, pristine beaches, glassy waters and amazing food! Barbados has made an indelible mark as a foodie paradise, and hosts one of the most delectable food festivals the Caribbean has ever seen – The Food & Rum Festival.
Although this year marks the first ever staging of the festival under the Food & Rum Festival flag, its precursor, the Barbados Food & Wine and Rum Festival, was a hit for five consecutive years, and featured mixologists, international celebrity and local chefs and a lineup of breathtaking venues and settings that made the festival the talk of the town for months after.
However, in this historic year when the island celebrates its 50th year of Independence, the 2016 staging will re-train its focus on the island’s first-class culinary talent, as well as one of the most iconic elements of the island’s culinary culture – rum! The festival kicks off from November 17 and runs through November 20, and the events include a Night Out in Oistins, the island’s premier fishing town and nighttime hotspot; the Rum Extravaganza, to be hosted at the museum of the nostalgic Concorde; and, a beach party aptly named Feet in the Sand to be hosted at the Hilton Barbados Resort.
Be sure to be a part of this once in a lifetime experience during the island’s golden celebrations! Our team of agents at Blue Sky Luxury are eager to assist you with further information on the Barbados Food & Rum Festival 2016!
