Barbados is often referred to as the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean. The Festival has given birth to a series of events, or better yet – culinary and beverage experiences – designed to tantalise the taste buds, while offering a variety of other colourful and flavourful experiences to stimulate the other senses as well. Experience a sophisticated, high-quality and upscale celebration of gastronomic art, featuring acclaimed international & local chefs, wine experts and mixologists.
Celebrate life on the beautiful shores of the Caribbean sea at the Barbados Food, Wine and Rum Festival. As the name boasts, this festival showcases the best culinary and epicurean delights the gorgeous island nation has to offer. Best of all, the festival takes places across various happening venues throughout the islands all with their own theme, live entertainment and more.
Independence, it's also when we celebrate the culinary heritage of the island with the annual Barbados Food and Rum Festival!
In previous years local chefs and mixologists were joined by international celebrity chefs to create exciting culinary delights. For the 2016 festival the focus will be more on Barbadian chefs and the traditional Barbados dining experience. It promises to be just as exciting and satisfying!
Of course with Barbados being the birthplace of rum, no epicurean festival would be complete without this local spirit. See what goes into making the perfect Barbados Rum Punch and explore where we've been creating some of the world's finest rums for over 350 years!
