This year’s third Taste of Bonaire event will be held on Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 in Wilhelmina Park.
Bonaire’s Cultural Attaché to Cuba will be performing.
This event’s theme is all about Bonaire’s unique culture, and will be a one-of-a-kind-event highlighting Bonaire’s cultural delegation to Cuba in July.
The “Gala di Boneiru”, in connection with SKAL and the Island Government, will present their entire two-hour show during this Taste of Bonaire, giving anyone on the island a preview of how the island will showcase its culture in Cuba next month.
Cultural Dance, Drama, and Song.
Performances at this event will be by Dance Sensation, Bonaire Folkloric Dancers, Grupo Tutti Frutti, Grupo Maskarada, a Brass Band, and also Gilberto Martis (the winner of “Ban Kanta Nos Boneiru“, Luigino Molina (“Rei di Tumba“), and Marjan Offerman (winner of “Kanto Krioyo.”) This lineup will provide an exciting show illustrating Bonaire’s history in the form of drama, dance, and singing.
Taste of Bonaire will be taking place in Wilhelmina Park from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM on Saturday, June 3rd, 2017. The park will be transformed into a theater style created for this special event.
Of course, there’s local food as well as international treats.
As always, there will be ample food stands selling local and international foods. The Marshe di Playa will be present offering enticing arts and handicrafts and souvenirs for sale.
But it doesn’t end there, as the the musical group, Grupo Watapana, will be keeping everyone’s toes tapping with their great music.
