Calling All Chefs and Food and Beverage Providers: Get Bermuda’s Taste Buds Talking!

Hamilton – July 14, 2023

One of the City of Hamilton’s most anticipated and fastest-growing annual events has returned for its tenth year!

The City is advising members of the public to save the date for Taste of Bermuda – Hamilton's most delicious and fun food festival which will run from October 13 to 15. Taste of Bermuda aims to highlight Bermuda’s eateries, showcase local culinary talent, as well as create vibrant and engaging multi-sensory experiences like never before.

The City is currently seeking creative and dynamic food and beverage offerings to include in this year’s Taste lineup.

“The City is looking for vendors that can provide one or two food or beverage items that they specialize in,” said the City’s Director of Marketing and Communications Ms. Jessica Astwood.  “The five categories of participating vendors we are looking to engage are food and beverage vendors or stalls, food trucks, fresh produce, Bermuda cookbooks & cookware, and décor tablescape showcases.

“This bespoke culinary experience has been designed to create an atmosphere which will connect attendees collectively with both old traditions and new trends in the culinary industry. Taste of Bermuda promises to showcase our culture, celebrate community and support Bermuda businesses.”

Among the offerings at the Taste of Bermuda 2023 event will be:

  • Set the Bar: Cocktail Competition

Friday, October 13th, 2023
The City of Hamilton will host Bermuda's premier cocktail competition waterside, at the newly renovated Pier 6. This evening will feature speciality products, custom cocktails made with premium spirits and unrivaled views for a Friday sunset happy hour in the City.

  • Front Street Formal: Live Dining Experience

Saturday, October 14th, 2023
Join the City as Front Street is shut down in style for a second year to assemble an even longer dinner table. Indulge in a plated meal, break bread with great company, and enjoy live entertainment showcases. Close the evening out with a nightcap and dancing in the centre of Hamilton's most iconic street.

  • Tasting Village

Sunday, October 15th, 2023
This lively street festival will feature a range of entertainment, a kids zone and culinary delights served up via Bermuda's most beloved food vendors and culinary institutions along Front Street. There will be a live  culinary stage that will be activated with upbeat cooking demos and DJs mixing classic cooking tunes.

Ms. Astwood added: “Taste of Bermuda appeals to such a wide range of Bermuda’s residents and visitors – from those seeking family-friendly activities for the weekend to those interested in unique, memorable eating, drinking and entertainment experiences and anyone with a simple love of food! In previous years, the event program has been known to bring out thousands of attendees over the course of the weekend.  This year’s program will transform the City into a gateway of all things delectable for one weekend!”
