The Tulum Food, Spirits & Wine Festival is an unprecedented one-week event that will bring the best of Mexico to Tulum.
Starting Monday, the festival commences with restaurant week. Participating restaurants in Playa del Carmen & Tulum restaurants. 3-course prix fixe menus will be available for lunch or dinner, allowing you to have a taste of Tulum. 2018 will celebrate its 2nd annual ‘Chefs Cooking for a Cause’ from May 22nd to May 27th. All portions of the festival revenues will go to a different charity. This year’s charitable proceeds will go to Puerto Rico’s Hurricane funds, and to help the street animals of Mexico. All sponsors, Mexico’s government, and all the participating Chefs will create to make a difference.
Thursday, the festival really kicks off in Tulum, with small tastings from different restaurants in the Yucatan, artisanal Mexican cheeses, cured meats, and everything else culinary, coupled with wine, spirits, and beers, alongside Mexican arts, crafts, and performances, all which will leave you breathless. Thursday evening…a private cannabis dinner, and several after parties fill up Tulum.
Friday & Saturday, during the day, the Pueblo becomes an agave spirit & street food tasting fiesta, where you will be able to experience the spirits of Agave, from Tequila to Mezcal, Pulque to Raicilla, while sampling amazing street food. Friday night, chef’s dinners throughout the beach zone, featuring superstar Chefs from the US & Mexico will create their style of Mexican cuisine, using local ingredients and techniques that are inspired by the artisanal culture of Mexico.
Saturday night, we will send the festival off with a themed closing party, on the beach, in 3-hotels, that will feature music, chefs making street food canapés with the Caribbean ocean in the background.
