A wealth of food festivals bring revelry to islands across the Caribbean each fall. These are the gastronomic events worth traveling for.
Bringing food lovers to the low-lying coral Turks and Caicos Islands is the annual Caribbean Food and Wine Festival (October 11th to 16th, 2023), which hosts everything from tastings to culinary demonstrations in a weekend of food and wine. This year’s festival showcasing the traditions and flavors of the Caribbean will include events such as the open-air TCI Food Festival hosted by the culinary ambassador of the Turks and Caicos Islands, Nikita Skippings, and a culinary trends symposium moderated by James Beard award-winning chef Meherwan Irani.
A three-day event taking over the island of New Providence’s Baha Mar resort complex, The Bahamas Culinary & Arts Festival (October 27th to 29th, 2023) pairs a series of demonstrations, tastings and gastronomic dining experiences hosted by a series of top chefs with parties, performances and an introduction to Bahamian art. This year, as it returns for its second edition, highlights are to include the Welcome Beach Party featuring a performance by Sting, a two-day Bahamas Culinary & Arts Expo promising to showcase the best of the Bahamas, and the premiere showcase of Caribbean-inspired art, FUZE, with artwork from seven different Caribbean nations.
Local and international chefs and mixologists come together at this five-day event celebrating the island’s culinary heritage and rum culture based on the nation’s claim as culinary capital of the Caribbean and the birthplace of rum. This year, the Barbados Food & Rum Festival (October 19th to 22nd, 2023) will include gastronomic events and activities such as the Chefs Classics cooking demos led by world-renowned culinary talent, the Rum Route tour between distilleries and the Bajan Fair offering entertainment and an introduction to local products.
Each November, visitors to the British Virgin Islands have the opportunity to be a part of the archipelago’s northernmost island’s celebration of seafood, Anegada Lobster Festival (November 24th to 26th, 2023). This remote island known for its long white-sand beaches, flamingos and 18-mile-long Horseshoe coral reef system is also celebrated for fresh fish and lobster. The annual three-day lobster festival gives visitors the chance to try the island’s famous shellfish prepared by a number of local vendors, with music and revelry adding to the occasion.
Across four days, Jamaica Food and Drink Festival (November 2nd to 5th, 2023) satisfies food lovers’ appetite for Caribbean flavors with a series of food and drink events featuring the island’s best chefs along with wine and spirits experts. The 2023 line-up includes both the Pork Palooza

The fall is (in many ways) the perfect time to travel. With moderate but still comfortable temperatures, beautiful fall foliage, lower prices ahead of the holidays and fewer crowds coming out of summer, you can enjoy a memorable vacation at many destinations across the U.S. and around the world.
With political turmoil worldwide, divided beliefs, and mandates facing ordinary citizens, the idea of creating your own country might seem like a dream. But with micronations launching around the world, this dream has become a reality despite not being recognized by governments.
I’m trying to master the downward dog when a flamingo trots past. The bird stands on the edge of my mat as I eye it from my upside down position. Puffing up its fuchsia feathers, it bends over effortlessly, its beak touching the ground, as if to prove its superior flexibility. Welcome to yoga, Bahamas-style.
Nearly 10 years ago, I had the opportunity to visit French Polynesia and stay in an overwater bungalow on the breathtaking island of Moorea. Waking up every morning and diving off the deck into some of the most crystalline waters I've ever seen was truly magical, and when it was time to go home I was already dreaming about going back.
There’s a lot to be excited about in the food world right now, with plenty of anticipated restaurant openings to keep track of. This fall, some of our favorite chefs are expanding to new cities, transitioning pop-ups into permanent spaces, and reviving the restaurants that their fans were sad to see go. In Chicago, a decorated chef will pay tribute to his roots at a new spot serving both traditional and reimagined Ukrainian dishes. And chef Sam Fore, the self-described “Sri Lankan snack queen,” will launch the long-awaited brick-and-mortar location of Tuk Tuk Snack Shop, her pop-up restaurant in Lexington, KY. The menu will highlight the commonalities between Sri Lankan cuisine and the flavors of the American South.
Bidding adieu to the season of sandals, white denim, and days spent soaking up the sun also calls for a wardrobe revamp. What’s more, as we inch into fall and its creature comforts (pumpkin spice lattes, foliage drives, and apple-picking outings), we tend to reach for cozier basics to keep us warm all autumn long. Enter the best cardigans for women: Versatile and stylish, these fall fashion staples come in an array of different lengths—from cropped to knee-length to even longer—and materials. Speaking of the latter, cashmere or wool cardigans are great options if you’re looking for optimal warmth; otherwise, you’ll find plenty of cotton, polyester, or nylon blends that offer comfort and durability that’ll last for months (if not years) on end.
