Summer is here and there will be plenty to do in Bermuda over the next couple months. June officially starts tomorrow and that’s when things tend to ramp right up. With Bermuda Carnival as the premier event in June, here are four additional must-attend events during summer’s shortest month.
National Rosé Day – June 8
For a rosé lover like me, this is one of the BEST events for the entire summer! It’s held in one of Bermuda’s best venues – Botanical Gardens and will feature a large variety of rosé wines. Organisers are calling it an “open air daytime garden party” and promise delicious rosé inspired cocktails, ciders, spirits, and the trendiest rosé inspired merchandise in the Local Vendor Village.
There will also be live entertainment, DJs, party games, food, fashions and much more. Tickets start at $100 and go up to $350 for the ultimate VIP experience in the Rosé Garden.
