Local Experiences

We support the place we call home. We are proud of our location and the talented individuals who live here. We also celebrate the cuisine that is available to guests at our resorts and throughout Turks and Caicos.

Caribbean Food and Wine Festival

Grace Bay Resorts proudly developed the inaugural Caribbean Food and Wine Festival in 2010 from the success of the initial Gourmet Safari and continues to provide key leadership and support of this annual event that showcases the exceptional cuisine that guests can discover on Turks and Caicos. The Festival includes a “gourmet safari”, a five-course meal with each course sampled at different award-winning restaurant. Each venue creates its own distinct fare, pairs it with fine wines, and serves it up with a spirit of culinary adventure. 

The Caribbean Food and Wine Festival is known as The Turks and Caicos’ leading culinary event. Since the introduction of the festival, we have seen an elevation in the culinary talent here in the islands. From professionals to the home cook, chefs of every level are being inspired by this event. Whether it be a gourmet dining experience or a traditional dish at a local bar, Turks and Caicos is becoming known for culinary talent. 

Events like the Gourmet Safari, Food and Wine Pairing and The Island Street Food Fair offer visitors the opportunity to sample varieties of food and drink they may not have tried before. There are very few events of this magnitude where guests not only experience cuisine of this level but have the chance to interact with the featured guests.
