They did not have a good turn out of vendors and the only good tent was a VIP tent that no one could access.

Parking was supposed to be included in the groupon, but we had to pay an extra $10 for parking the day of the event. We didn't receive our free shot glasses or t-shirts. The free drinks and samples were watered down. Vendors were few, and food bad!

There where only 2 booths for rum samples where as the year before there was more. It was hot with no place to cool off and did not seem to as many other activities. Got bored and left early, lines where long for the 2 samples

Only about 6 different tents offering rum. Really small offering for the cost of VIP tickets.

I heard that last year they had more vendors out there with different samplings of rum, included a history of rum class.

The ad was misleading, definitely a play on words. I thought the after party was included. This was a rip off. I paid an entrance fee and the lines were super long and the tastings were limited. I would never recommend this!

More than a Caribbean Festival, it was a reggae festival with rum booths. We were not able to use all our rum samples' tickets included in the deal because the booths ran out of rum in the early evening ...

Got the VIP level and still had to stand in line to get in? One bartender, took 20 minutes to get a drink. WHAT RIP OFF.

Had the makings to be good but the lack of staffing made it a bad experience. VIP wasn't worth the money even at the discount. The lines were long everywhere and the bartenders lacked experience. Most of the patrons were waiting in line instead of mixing and mingling and enjoying the entertainment.

From Our Editors

Houston Caribbean RumFest brings revelers together to learn about the history of rum—but just sipping will do just as well. At this party, rum samples abound, and so do many hallmarks of Caribbean culture. Traditional jerks, curries, and rum-infused bites and cocktails bring added spice to the festivities, while live Caribbean music provides an island soundtrack. Other activities include cocktail classes and painting. Giving rum some more time in the spotlight, the flair bartending contest has drink mixers delighting onlookers with dazzling tricks that delight far better than just gluing a coaster to the bottom of each glass.
