Looking for that place where you can have fun in the sun
while taking in some of the rich History and Culture that a
petite Caribbean Island has to offer?
Nevis' Culturama has
all that and much more for you. Celebrated over the
Emancipation Day weekend, Culturama is a time when class
barriers are broken down and people of all creed and class,
locals and visitors alike, become culturally assimilated and
socially united in seven days of fun, frolic, mas, revelry,
splendor, history and creativity.
Calypso tents, village street jams, fashion shows, beach
and house parties, swim suits contests, night dances, boat
rides and dramatic presentations, all herald the build up to
an action packed Emancipation Day weekend.
Two of the most important shows are the Calypso King competition and the Miss Culture Queen competition. The Miss Culture Queen competition is a display of intelligence, talent and beauty making it one of the largest attraction for the Culturama Festival. It is a contest that have produce some outstanding performances.
Not to be outdone, the Calypso King competition is usually the most anticipated show during the Culturama festival season where eight calypsonians use their gift of words and music to express in song the social reality of the local, regional and international community.
