Here is a link to the events schedule http://www.soulbeach.net/2015/index.php/events
There are still a few locations listed as TBD, but it will give a general idea of the venues and times for those who want to schedule accordingly.
Lamb sounds interesting! I like to try something I normally would not eat at a rest. They have this seafood trio dish, grouper, salmond and i believe shrimp that sounds interesting. Def on the nutella cheese cake to share probably. Usually too full for dessert but it's my birthday on that day. Thx
The island is more crowded during the soul beach festival. We have been there 3 times for it and once for HBOs one hot summer with Sinbad. We will be there again this year. Most people that come down just for the festival only stay 4 or 5 days so those are the really crowded days. There is a site that shows where and when each performance and event will be. If they avoid those areas at those times, they will be fine or maybe they might want to attend some of them. Big thing for that week is to be sure and make dining reservations early because some places fill up fast. Ren island will be same as normal, maybe a little more crowded as the Ren Marina will be full for sure.
