Bimini Bread Festival: October 6 - 8
One can't visit Bimini without trying Bimini Bread-- this sweet, buttery white bread leaves a lasting impression on anyone who experiences Bimini's "tastes like heaven" local treasure. One of Bimini's biggest parties of the year takes place in October and is entirely in celebration of the local bread; the Bimini Bread Festival will take place the weekend of October 6-8 this year. This annual event draws locals and visitors in anticipation of exciting activities with local Bahamian flair throughout and most importantly, all the Bimini bread guests can eat. The day of the actual festival will take place on Saturday, October 7 at Fisherman’s Village, however guests of Resorts World Bimini can expect unique festivities on-site all weekend long.
In celebration of the Bimini Bread festival, Resorts World Bimini will be offering a multitude of one-of-a-kind experiences that guests will forever reminisce back on during their time in Bimini which are only occurring during this weekend in October. The resort will be hosting Bimini Bread making classes featuring a wood-fired grill so guests can learn the magic behind this local staple and how to make it back home. There will also be a Bimini Bread making contest where guests can put their new bread-making skills to the test. The property will also offer Bahamian beer specials (because what pairs better with Bimini bread than an ice-cold Kalik?) with local vendors invited to support. And the fun doesn't stop there, travelers can expect live local entertainment featuring Bahamian music, dance performances, and traditional Junkanoo costumes at nearby Fisherman's Village.
