The Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc. (BTMI) tried to make the 10th staging of the Food and Rum Festival four "special" days, but 2020 is set to be an entire year of tasty fun.


So, forget counting down the 362 days from now to the next Food and Rum Festival in Barbados in October 2020, because the organizers have plans for every month next year.

With many Barbadians and tourists having enjoyed the inaugural Food and Rum Food Truck Mash-Up on Day three of the 10th Edition of this local festival, Chief Product Development Officer with the BTMI, Marsha Alleyne was excited to share next year's amazing plan with Loop Lifestyle.

Alleyne said:

"The Food and Rum concept, Food and Rum experience will be a very, very big part of the Gatherin'.

"We are going to have rather than just having one big festival, we want to have monthly festivals throughout the year so that people when they come home from all over the world that they will actually be able to experience some aspect of Food and Rum."

The Festival this year started on Thursday, October 24, at Oistins Bay Gardens, then there was the Gourmet Safari held at restaurants along the West and South coasts of Barbados, then Saturday was the Food Truck Mash-Up at Pelican followed by the climax at Ilaro Court for Epicure, tonight, October 27, 2019.
