ARTS & HERITAGE MONTH
Saint Lucians are proud of their cultural and artistic heritage. To tie in with the celebration of Jounen Kweyol (Creole Day) on the last Sunday in October, the entire month will have a national programme to showcase our rich and diverse history and our traditional ways.
Activities during October will include musical, theatrical and other performances, seminars and lectures, art exhibitions, culinary experiences and street parties. Even the supermarkets will have decorations, displays and our traditional music playing (see our feature on shak-shak bands on here). The culmination of the festival will be on Sunday 29th October with day-long celebrations in designated communities around the island.
