     November is just a few months away, it is definitely time to start putting your plans together to be in St. Maarten for this years Caribbean Rum and Beer Festival.   This year the event is being moved outdoors allowing for larger booths and an easier access to all of the booths and events that are a part of this wonderful festival now in its sixth year.

The one of a kind event is an expo of rum & beer beverages, combined with the 2016 CAB Taste Contest, workshops, cooking demos, cocktail competitions, rum & beer seminars, music, entertainment and pure fun. 

     “This will be our second year here in St Maarten.” Explained Festival Director Ms. Cheryl Collymore, “Last year our exhibitors and patrons were so enthusiastic about how everything had come together that we just knew we had to come back to this amazing island. We are excited to be back and will be adding new activities such as an evening of rum and gastronomy at a local restaurant, the ‘Rum & Cigar’ zone and the ‘Chocolate, rum & beer pairing’ segment.”

   In the run up to the event the Festival organizers have been in discussions with both the St Maarten Tourism Bureau and the St Martin Tourist Office to promote the event to the international market to attract long stay visitors to the island.   Hosting the Festival in St Maarten means an increase in global media attention and arrivals from exhibitors, trade representatives, international rum & beer VIP judges and visitors who are excited to attend the festival in a beautiful Caribbean island.   Ms. Collymore stated “We recognize how the Caribbean Rum & Beer Festival brings significant benefits to the host country, and we are pleased to work closely with a number of local stakeholders with the intention of making this year’s Festival the biggest and most entertaining yet.”
