Taste of Cayman moves to Camana Bay

| 24/10/2008

(CNS): Cayman’s annual Food and Wine Festival will take place in the Camana Bay Town Centre for the first time this year on Saturday, 1 November, from 5:00 pm to midnight. According to the Cayman Islands Tourism Association (CITA), the Taste of Cayman has evolved over the years from its original food festivalin the field of Safe Haven years ago.

CITA says its new direction has enabled the event to increase the international culinary exposure for the Cayman Islands: “This annual event is a tourism showcase of many Cayman epicurean delights and with the expansion of the Taste of Cayman to a food and wine festival we anticipate having this become a stay over visitor sales tool which will compete with other Caribbean Island food and wine festivals.”

CITA said having Camana Bay as a major partner is a natural fit, and that as the Town Centre at Camana Bay develops, Taste of Cayman will draw more vendors and a larger crowd of attendees. “We hope to expand on our Entertainment program and our number of vendors at the main event next year and include more events allowing the festival to spread our 3-4 days,” said Trina Christian, CITA Executive Director.

Susanna deSaram, Communications Manager for Dart Realty, said, “For Camana Bay the Taste of Cayman was an event that we had hoped to one day host as part of our vision for connecting the community. It allows us the opportunity to bring the Town Centre to life and allow residents and visitors the chance to enjoy the Camana Bay’s landscape and surroundings whilst being involved in a fabulous event that has played a key role in the culture of Cayman.”

The design of Camana Bay has allowed the event to take on an array of different atmospheres to which attendees can explore, from the Butterfield Kid’s Corner, the Restaurants on Market Street, the Market on Cayman Court and the Luna del Mar Lounge by Cayman Distributer’s and Blackbeard’s.
