Bessfest: Taste of Trinidad & Tobago Food Festival

Calling all foodies.

The first annual Bessfest: Taste of Trinidad & Tobago is a premier food festival experience that will allow foodies to indulge in the ‘bess’ of Trinbagonian gastronomy and culture.

The event is hosted by Bessguide, a media company owned by The House Of 6 Inc. that focuses on the ‘bess’ of Trinidadian lifestyle and culture.

We believe that it’s important to remind the local community and show tourists that Trinidad and Tobago is so special because of its diverse culture. Bessfest is about bringing together new vendors who are trying to build a name for themselves and the familiar restauranteurs who we know so well. From our Trinbagonian favourites to new tastes, we’ll have it all. Stay tuned for our full list or vendors and sponsors.

When is it?

Bessfest: Taste of Trinidad & Tobago happens Saturday July 8th, 2017 in the paddock of Queen’s Park Savannah, from 2PM-12AM. Come hungry and indulge in various cuisines from all over the country.
