Bermuda Alfresco Dining Festival To Be Held

July 20, 2020

The Bermuda Alfresco Dining Festival will take place from September 17 to September 26, the BTA announced.

A spokesperson said, “In tourism destinations around the world, travellers are drawn to outdoor dining — perhaps more now than ever before. That’s why the Bermuda Tourism Authority [BTA] is putting together the Bermuda Alfresco Dining Festival.

“It’ll be an east-to-west, island-wide, all-meals culinary celebration where any local restaurant with outdoor dining can register to participate. The BTA will promote the festival to visitors and locals, part of an ongoing inside-out marketing strategy designed to help Bermuda’s economy get going again while the return of travellers is gradual.

“The Bermuda Alfresco Dining Festival will take place September 17 to September 26. Any restaurant, food truck or pop-up eatery is eligible to register for the festival as long as they have outdoor seating for one of the following meals: breakfast, lunch, dinner, brunch or afternoon tea. Registration takes place via an online form.

“Eligible registrations received on or before July 29 can ensure they are part of the festival’s marketing. A missed deadline may result in missed marketing opportunities. We look forward to your participation.”

    How does the COH allow this they take up 5 or more parking spaces with that crap? A guess the Co-operation is charging them for the space hence the greed for money. SMH!

      There is not enough parking for cars or bikes now.

      • Joe Bloggs says:

        There is certainly not enough bike parking because cars park in bike bays and take up 6 or 7 bike bays … and the Parking Wardens heave either been laid off or do not care.

          I haven’t seen that, but I’ve certainly seen commercial vehicles park in car bays (One vehicle takes up two bays!) and bike bays. (And) Yet regular vehicles will be ticketed for using a commercial bay..! Tsk!

        This type of shallow selfish comment is what holds Bermuda back.
        These restaurants have suffered terribly. Hamilton is empty and parking is everywhere and readily available.
        Al Fresco dining is wonderful and we all should encourage much more of it. Bermuda lends itself perfectly to Al Fresco dining.
        Credit to the restaurants, COH, BTA, the government depts and all those that came together.
        Thank you from all of us that appreciate you and that’s a very big number.

    “Any restaurant, food truck or pop-up eatery is eligible …”

    Pop-up eatery? Are we no dispensing with health requirements in order for people to make a dollar?
