The Caribbean Food & Wine Festival makes its return to Turks & Caicos, Oct. 14–16, for the first time since 2019. Celebrity chefs, winemakers and more come together for three days of delicious cuisine and cocktails at Grace Bay Resort.


“We started the Caribbean Food & Wine Festival to engage visitors in the rich culinary heritage of the Turks and Caicos Islands. The festival’s inception also came from our desire to help foster local talent, which is something we proactively pursue at each of the restaurant concepts at Grace Bay Resorts. Now in its 12th year, the festival has successfully increased our culinary prominence on an international level and put Turks and Caicos on the map as an epicurean destination worth traveling for,” said Nikheel Advani, co-chair, Caribbean Food & Wine Festival, and COO and co-founder, Grace Bay Resorts.
