A new culinary festival is coming to The Bahamas in October. 

The new Bahamas Culinary & Arts Festival will be hosted at the Baha Mar megaresort on Nassau’s Cable Beach. 

The three-day food and culture festival will be headlined by a trio of celebrity chefs, including Marcus Samuelsson, Daniel Boulud and Dario Cecchini, all of whom have restaurants at the resort. 

They’ll be joined by TV personality and “culinary maven” Amanda Freitag, along with restaurateur Carla Hall and Bahamian chef and culinary artisan Simeon Hall, Jr. 

“We are thrilled to debut The Bahamas Culinary & Arts Festival at Baha Mar, which will highlight the resort as the culinary, art and cultural destination of choice within the Caribbean,” said Graeme Davis, President, Baha Mar. “This premiere event will allow us to showcase the extraordinary culinarians, as well as artistic creativity found both at Baha Mar and throughout The Bahamas joined by international guest stars. We envision this festival becoming the leading celebration of food and art in the region, providing locals and visitors with the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the island’s rich culture and gastronomic offerings.”

The festival will feature a culinary and arts expo, with interactive cooking demos, dine-arounds and new art exhibitions by the resort’s Executive Director of Arts and Culture, John Cox. 

All of the headlining chefs will be hosting “exclusive, bespoke interactive experiences,” that will be announced later in the summer. 

“I’m so honored to be part of this monumental event, taking place at one of my favorite destinations, Baha Mar,” said Samuelsson, who has the Marcus Fish + Chop House at the resort. “We’ve set the stage for a truly unforgettable festival, and myself, alongside my colleagues and friends, are excited to continue highlighting the local culinary scene, matched with unique Bahamian art and culture.”
