Every October, the Annual International Culture Wine & Food Festival offers ethnic foods, delicious drinks and stunning artworks or craft items. This year it is slated for 14 & 15 October from 10 am to 6 pm at the Botanical Gardens, Nassau.
Under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Festival fosters friendly relations and understanding between Bahamians and the international resident community. This high quality organic experience, that emerged from members of the community, has become an international signature event, that serves to demonstrate just how diverse and cosmopolitan The Bahamas has become.
The Festival also provides a global platform for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to encourage foreign countries to consider staging food and cultural weeks as well as host more trade missions to The Bahamas.
Since its reinstatement in 2009, the Festival has proved to be arguably the most popular Festival in The Bahamas attracting up to 25,000 visitors each year. Every year exciting new features, more booths and more stage presentations are added. Ever-popular with adults and children, the Festival provides fun activities for all ages.
