Upcoming Culinary Events - Camana Bay Grand Cayman

Reinforcing Grand Cayman’s position as the epicurean hub of the Caribbean - The town of Camana Bay is the host for two more upcoming culinary events in Grand Cayman



Camana Bay actively participates in Grand Cayman’s burgeoning culinary community

In 2013, Camana Bay welcomed three new restaurants - Mizu, Upper Crust, The Waterfront, as well as West Indies Wine Company - to its diverse group of cafes, bars, organic markets and specialty shops.

A destination within a destination, Camana Bay is a vibrant town located in the heart of Grand Cayman. Stretching 500 acres from the famous Seven Mile Beach to the tranquil North Sound, this mixed-use master planned community opened in December 2007 and is one of the first examples of "New Urbanism" in the Caribbean.

Upcoming Foodie Events:

Taste of Cayman Food & Wine Festival - February 8, 2014

Camana Bay will take center stage again with Taste of Cayman Food & Wine Festival - one of the largest culinary festivals in the Caribbean. Taste of Cayman will prominently exhibit the best of modern and traditional Cayman fare in a fun festival atmosphere. 

This year, more than 40 restaurants will compete for the coveted “Best Of” awards, as well as a heavy cake competition and a “mix off” cocktail competition.

Slow Food Day - April 12, 2014

Camana Bay will host Slow Food Day, a daylong celebration of the Cayman Islands’ farmers and fishermen, in conjunction with James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Schwartz of Michael’s Genuine® Food & Drink. 

The third annual event will bring the culinary community together in a celebration of eating locally and sourcing sustainability. Food tastings with locally sourced ingredients will take place throughout the day, and the event will conclude with a special dinner highlighting the best of Cayman cuisine from the restaurants of Camana Bay.

The 6th annual Cayman Cookout was held on January 16-19th, and during the three day event, Camana Bay welcomed festival host Eric Ripert, Anthony Bourdain and approximately 300 attendees to a special presentation called “Taming the Lionfish"

The presentation celebrated the success of divers and chefs who have banded together to protect Cayman’s reefs from lionfish, an invasive fish that is killing native marine species. All Cayman Cookout Dinner Photo's courtesy of The Wilbert Group.
