The Flavor Of Rum is the theme of the 2016 St. Croix Rum Festival to be held at the historical Fort Frederik in Frederiksted, St. Croix U.S. Virgin Islands on May 29 of this year, from 3pm to midnight.
The event overlooks the magnificent backdrop of the Ann E. Abramson Marine Facility, the main cruise ship port in St. Croix, nearby to Frederiksted Beach.
Since the early 1800s, St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands has been producing some of the world’s most notable rums, including the popular Cruzan brand.
In addition to many fine rum samples to taste, the festival features the best local food from some of St. Croix’s finest cooks and restaurants, with live music from local and international entertainers, a Bikini Contest, a BBQ Rum Contest and a Flair Bartender Show Competition. Also on hand will be artists displaying handmade crafts — a celebration of Virgin Islands’ unique lifestyle and culture.
According to event promoter Mr. George Moore, “the St. Croix Rum Festival is about the celebration and appreciation of numerous rums — a treat for both tourists and locals.”
In addition to the Sunday rum festival, a schedule of St. Croix tours on Friday and Saturday, May 27 and 28 will be offered to participants.
