They consist of entertainers who want to delight their audience and who are really looking forward to performing here in Cayman.”

“It is also important to us that we take this opportunity to not only highlight the culinary talents we have here in the Cayman Islands but also our wider pool of creative artists. We are happy to be able to give our local performers a platform to share their talents.”

Taste of Cayman Food & Drink Festival 2017:

Taste of Cayman began in the late 80’s, when a small number of restaurants from the Cayman Islands Restaurant Association met in a field to compete in a Chili Cook Off. The event has now grown into what it is today, with thousands of festival goers and over 45 restaurants, bars and vendors participating in the island’s largest foodie gathering. 2017’s Taste of Cayman Food & Drink Festival will be the 29th annual festival and includes new features such as the VIP area.
