Bonaire Rum Week

Bonaire Rum Week takes place this year from June 14-17, 2022.

The first-ever Bonaire Rum Week takes place June 14-17, 2022. It's a weeklong celebration of rum, the Caribbean's most famous spirit and the fuel of every memorable gathering in the Caribbean. Bonaire Rum Week is presented by Caribbean Journal, the world's largest Caribbean travel media company and the team behind the annual Caribbean Rum Awards in St. Barth, in partnership with Tourism Corporation Bonaire. This year's event gives travelers four days of innovative rum programming, from a selection of some of the world's finest sipping rums to an island-wide cocktail competition. 



All of the events are open to the public, while the Rum Lunch at Harbour Village and the final dinner at Brass Boer are RSVP only. Please contact for more information. 

Getting to Bonaire is easy, with regularly scheduled service from the US on carriers like United, Delta and American Airlines.
