New Dates for the 18th World Creole Music Festival
In keeping with the theme of integrating the World Creole Music Festival with Dominica’s Independence celebrations, the date for the Festival was advanced one week prior to the originally scheduled date of the last weekend in October.
It is felt that this move will allow for a seamless transition between the two activities which showcases Dominica’s rich cultural heritage.
According to Director of Tourism, Mr. Colin Piper, “This year, we expect the Festival to continue the positive growth trend which we saw in 2013, which we felt was as a result of an extensively targeted marketing campaign to the neighbouring French territories and Caribbean islands.”
The official launch of Dominica’s 18th World Creole Music Festival is scheduled to take place in July 2014.
