What’s better than white sand beaches, sun, and delicious island food? We’ll wait.

November officially kicks off the 6th installment of the British Virgin Islands’ Food Fête. From November 7 through December 1, you can experience some of the region’s most popular cuisine and spirits through a variety of events.

The calendar kicks off with a soiree on November 7. This upscale event will bring chefs from all around who will serve up a unique multi-course dinner experience complete with wine and spirit pairings.

This particular event will be held on Scrub island at their island resort.

Next up will be the ‘Taste of Tortola.’ As we mentioned, the island of Tortola is largely Black-owned, so you know this event will be one for the books. It will be set up as more of a casual, street food fest complete with vendors and local food trucks. You know the music will be pumping too.

The following week will bring a rum festival. You can’t be on an island and not sip on a little rum. You’ll be able to sample some of the world’s best rums during this day-long event.

The day after the is Jost Pork and more, which highlights all things pork. But, if you don’t eat pork you’re in luck. This year they will feature several vegetarian dishes as well.

The last two events of the month include ‘Taste of the Virgin Gorda’ and the Anegada Lobster Fest.

If you’re not familiar with Virgin Gorda, it’s a smaller island that is known for its popular landmark, ‘The Baths.’ These giant boulder-like rock formations are similar to those found in Seychelles. So, you’ll get to sample great foods while taking in one of the world’s best backdrops.
