This year’s festival theme is ‘Rhythms of the Nature Isle’, with Creole Fusion as the fashion theme. Preparation for this year’s event is in full swing and the Tongue of Portsmouth is gearing up to welcome a lively weekend as the 13e edition of the festival has inspired a series of Fringe events.

Still, the events this weekend are the Basketball Classic at Benjamin’s Park, Carib Hype at the HHV parking lot in PE in Portsmouth, Jazz on the Rooftop at Atlantic View Resort in Anisme, Jazz by the Riverside in Rosalie Bay and Jazz in Parade in Paradijsvallei.

These side events are scheduled for Saturday, with a jazz afterparty scheduled for Sunday at the Bell Hall Beach Resort, and Jazz Seafood Lime on Monday. Over the years, the event has attracted visitors from across the region to celebrate Dominica culture and this year is expected to be no different.

Patrons are encouraged to support both the Fringe events and Jazz’n Creole’s main stage event, with safety as a priority. The event aims to promote the culture and vibrancy of Dominica as a region and as a tourist destination.

With its unique cultural offering, the festival will strengthen the tourism economy and provide exceptional business to locals, street vendors and small entrepreneurs.

The festival also serves as a platform for many to showcase their talent and skills and put themselves in the forefront of the national and international community
