CARIFESTA is a unique Caribbean festival that celebrates the diverse cultural expression of the Region’s artists and artisans in fashion, food, festivals, the Arts (visual and theatrical), and art and craft. CARIFESTA has been a Regional staple of Caribbean cultural celebrations since it came onto the scene in 1972 when it was first hosted in Georgetown, Guyana. Throughout the years, various Caribbean countries have played host to this Regional festival and Barbados will be doing so for a second time in history with this year’s event under the theme: “Asserting Our Culture, Celebrating OurSelves.”
