St Martin’s Must-Visit Culinary Festival Is Back This November

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 6, 2024

It just might be the best culinary destination in the Caribbean. And if you’ve been to the French side of St Martin, you know it’s a rather difficult proposition to challenge.

Three years ago, the destination doubled down on its gourmet pedigree and launched a new annual culinary event — and now the Festival de la Gastronomie, “The Saint Martin Gastronomy Festival,” is back for its fourth annual edition. 

This year’s event runs from Nov. 11-22, with 10 days of vibrant events from mixology to cuisine and prix-fixe menus. 

That’s along with a series of competitions, including a high school cooking event, a barbecue competition and a bartending competition, among others. 

There’s also the popular Taste of Sunrise local brunch on the beach, along with a restaurateurs’ village, a collection of food trucks and a closing night featuring a lineup of international chefs. 

It’s one of the most exciting foodie-focused events in the Caribbean, and yet another great reason to visit one of the Caribbean’s most fascinating travel destinations.
