Good news to all rum aficionados! There is a rum and Caribbean-themed festival happening in Singapore from 10 July 2017 to 15 July 2017 at Keong Saik. Immerse yourself in a Caribbean oasis and get savvy with rum, hearty eats, and Caribbean culture at Rasa Fiesta Singapura 2017.

Those of us who are passionate about rum will know the sugarcane-based spirit hardly gets as much attention as whiskeys and craft beers. But the Rasa Fiesta Singapura is surely reason for lovers of rum to rejoice!

The event is also a celebration of Caribbean, South American and Filipino culture and lifestyle—three cultures in which rum is immensely popular.

From Monday to Friday (10 July 2017 to 14 July 2017), iconic cocktail bars such as Sugarhall, Vasco, Potato Head, Bread Street Kitchen, Phat Cat Laundry and Lime House will transform into a tropical oasis; mixing up a selection of rum-based cocktails going for S$15 to S$25 each.

Each of the venues will also be slinging cocktails dedicated to a particular rum brand. These include, but are not limited to, Appleton Estate, Don Papa (a Filipino rum that has been gaining immense popularity), Saint James and Sailor Jerry.

Attendees are thereby encouraged to visit each of the venues to discover the rich and diverse aspects of rum originating from the different Caribbean cultures; that is, South America, Jamaica, the Philippines and more.

On the nights, attendees will also be provided with a map, and each stop will warrant them a stamp. Once five stamps are collected, they will be eligible to redeem some prizes including coupons, tiki mugs, and even a one-night staycation at Swissotel Merchant Court.

To wrap up this glorious event, a bustling and vibrant Tiki Festival – Rasa Fiesta Singapura Block Party—will take place on Jiak Chuan Road on Saturday, 15 July 2017. Expect delicious street food, salsa performances, tattoo artists, workshops and private tastings of some exclusive rarities.

On the street, expect to find dancers, limbo games, beer pong, live DJ performances, and workshops. Food vendors from Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and the French Carribean will be there to satisfy your appetite as well.

Mark this one down in your calendar folks; it’s going to be well worth your while!
