Festival RumBahamas is gearing up to once again bring the public a rum festival like no other. There will be food, there will be dancing, there will be music, and that might even be a little rum there as well. Who knows, a Junkanoo parade might just appear out of no where like it did last year. Nassau’s Festival RumBahamas is more than just a rum event, it’s a Bahamian cultural experience.
The event takes place in the historic Fort Charlotte which overlooks Nassau Harbour, and I have to say it’s one of the coolest features of the event. There’s nothing like sipping rums from all over the world while you sit in a dungeon or gaze down the barrel of a cannon that points out towards the blue Bahamian water. You’ll see cruise ships come and go, but your imagination will travel back in time to when the harbor was full of tall ships of the Royal Navy and the fort protected the island from pirates. Having a rum festival in a place like this…it just doesn’t get any better.
Festival RumBahamas will have a rum competition, judged by some of the best minds in the business. You’ll be able to talk to the judges whom will give you a break down on the different varieties of rums, not just from the Caribbean but from all over the world. Oh yes, the judges will have samples ready and waiting for you.
