2015 Festival Checklist

We’ve hosted this festival for a long time so it’s safe to say we’ve learned a few things about the best way to enjoy Taste of Cayman. So here we offer you some tips to help you plan your festival experience.

We’re on a grass field so wear comfortable shoes! If you’re bringing a stroller, consider how it will manouever on gravel and grass and determine the best plan for your family

Arrive alive. There are tons of wonderful wines, spirits and brews to taste and enjoy throughout the night. Make plans BEFORE you come to the festival for how you will get home. Arrange for a designated driver, use Homesafe from The Security Centre or take a taxi home.

Check out the Festival Parking Map BEFORE you get there. This will allow you to see where you can park at Camana Bay and how to enter the festival, which is located in the grass lot adjacent to the Ogier Building. Click here for a copy of the map.

Once you reach the Festival Green, the entry process will be quick! We’ve expedited the process to ensure you get in quickly through our multi-laned entrance. You will receive a wristband in exchange for your pre-purchased entrance ticket and you will receive a small envelope with 15 food tickets and one (1) voting token to select “Cayman’s Favourite Restaurant” and your souvenir wine glass (while supplies last).

Purchase your drink tickets at the entrance before getting into the festival to avoid lining up again once inside the festival. Even better, purchase your drink tickets IN ADVANCE online at www.tasteofcayman.org/tickets or at the CITA office.

How food and drink tickets work: you receive 15 food tickets upon entering the festival when you get your wristband. Additional food tickets are $1 each. We recommend using the ones you have first. You might not need additional tickets because our vendors are generous!

Remember to use your token to cast your vote for “Cayman’s Favourite Restaurant’. There will be clear plastic containers at each booth to cast your vote.

Arrive early to enjoy the food and drink! Food service ends at 10:00pm. Be sure to scope out all of the vendors before making your selections!

If you purchased your Taste of Cayman entry tickets on line, stop at the Will Call booth located just outside the main entrance

Come for the food but stay for the party! We’ve got HEAT, Suite Elite and Classic Tributes Live performing!

Don’t forget to drop your unused food and drink tickets in the boxes on your way out. The value of each ticket will go toward Cayman’s ARK, our chosen charity for this year’s Festival.
