(MIAMI, September 26, 2017) – See & Taste Belize Inc., co-hosted by the Special Envoy for Women and Children and the Spouse of the Prime Minister, Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow, along with its partners, The Belize Tourism Board, BELTRAIDE and National Institute for Culture and History, will be hosting its second See and Taste Belize Festival on Saturday, October 7th at the Florida International University Kovens Center. This year’s event will raise funds for the Inspiration Center of Belize, the first of its kind to care for children with disabilities in Belize. 

The last See & Taste Belize Festival enjoyed immense success thanks to the support of its sponsors and the Belizean Diaspora who came from all over the USA to enjoy and celebrate Belize, and all the wonderful things they love and miss (friends, food, music, art, rum and beer)! This gathering offered an amazing opportunity to raise over US$60,000.00 towards the building of the first Neo-Natal and Pediatric Intensive Care Unit in Belize.
See & Taste Belize Inc. will once again celebrate Belize’s vibrant and diverse culture in South Florida represented by a fusion of foods spanning its Mayan, Garifuna, Creole and European heritage. Renowned chefs and artists from Belize will be there to share their gastronomical and artistic talents at a one-day festival. Guests will also enjoy samplings of Belize’s local rum from renowned Traveller’s and Cuello’s as well as our famous Belikin beer, while listening to the tune of the coveted Garifuna Collective.
