“The dedicated team of NCVO volunteers willingly give their time and resources to provide care, education and well–being to children and families in need of support in the Cayman Islands,” said Mrs. Dixon-Ebanks. “As our local community remains at the heart of everything Taste of Cayman, the NCVO was chosen as a deserving charity for the 2019 event.”

Taste of Cayman Food & Drink Festival 2019:

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. Celebrating its 31st anniversary in 2019, the event has now grown into what it is today, with thousands of festival goers and over 35 restaurants, bars and vendors participating in the island’s largest foodie gathering.
