A luxury harbourside picnic and “dine in the dark” experiences are among the schedule of events for a revamped food festival in Hamilton.

Taste of Bermuda, organised by the City of Hamilton and the Bermuda Tourism Authority, will feature family favourites as well as the chance for people to step outside their culinary comfort zones.

Jessica Astwood, the City of Hamilton event project manager, said: “We are especially thrilled that through our partnership with the Bermuda Tourism Authority we have pulled out all the stops to ensure that we are providing Bermuda and her visitors with the latest in culinary trends as well as condensing the best of our island’s gastronomy in one weekend.

“We’ve even timed the street festival event to coincide with a ship in port on Front Street to allow our food vendors to get the most out of their time.”

She added: “Organisations the world over combine efforts in creating their nations’ food festivals into a peak source of pride and we at the city intend on doing just that.”

The event is a replacement for the City Food Festival and will run from October 11 to 13.

The festival will also include the annual bartender competition and a bartending masterclass. The activities will culminate in a Front Street “tasting village”.

A call for vendors and chefs who would like to take part is scheduled to made in the next few weeks.
