Kings of Conch
While the U.S. is gearing up for Thanksgiving, in the Turks and Caicos, November marks the 12th annual Conch Festival! On November 28th and running through the weekend, the festival features live entertainment from local Turks and Caicos artists and traditional ripsaw and steel pan music. The festival highlight is the "conch-etition," which pits the island’s chefs in a heated competition for the best conch dish, with categories like Best Conch Salad, Best Conch Chowder, Best Specialty Conch and more! The winners will be selected by a panel of judges and by a popular vote from attendees who buy a tasting pass and get to sample all the entrees. Located less than twenty minutes from our Turks and Caicos oceanfront resort, the event will also feature games and activities for kids, with face painting, sack races and a bouncy castle. So be sure to check out this celebration of the island’s most famous delicacy and number one export.
