St kitts and Nevis organises its famous annual Culturama festival to attract tourists

St Kitts and Nevis, often known as the exclusive Caribbean area, is a beautiful island with a long history that has been shaped by many different civilizations. The twin-island Federation, a less well-known yet opulent place, attracts a lot of interest from people all over the world. It is the best nation for people looking for a blend of resort leisure, beautiful scenery, a dash of adventure, and a sprinkle of history.

The island nation of St. Kitts is renowned for its hotels, bars, and eateries. Nevis is a display of the grandeur that has come to characterize this area.

The twin-island Federation in the Caribbean offers a high standard of living together with the top healthcare, education, and tourist sectors. The Joseph N. France General Hospital, which is in St. Kitts, and the Alexandra Hospital, which is in Nevis, are the nation’s two medical institutions. In addition, the nation is home to several institutions, some of which are private medical schools.

In addition, infrastructure expenditure has transformed the nation from just 20 years ago. Basseterre has a bustling cruise ship port complex, and new roads have been constructed to relieve traffic congestion. Additionally, St. Kitts and Nevis have successfully organized a number of events, like Culturama, to honour and promote its rich cultural history. The yearly celebration began on July 21 and will go through August 7, 2022.

Culturama is Nevis’ form of carnival and is celebrated for over 12 days. This year marks the 48th anniversary, under the theme “Fete and Celebrate Nevis Culturama 48.” From its inception, the festival has been dubbed as the ‘Caribbean’s Greatest Summer Lime’. The theme for the festival is decided with a small slogan competition in which every citizen of the Federation participates.

The festival is a flamboyant demonstration of Nevis’ culture, from its folklore to the music and dancing and displays of local talent. The festival consisted packed schedule that highlights all aspects of Nevisian arts and culture through poetry nights, games, aquatic extravaganzas, craft and food fair, sports racing, Soca Monarch competitions, steel pan night and more. Various other events such as fetes, pageants and a colourful street parade of spectacular costumes also shine a spotlight on the authentic cultural experiences.

Began in 1974, Culturama is the brainchild of the Nevis Dramatic and Cultural Society (NEDACS). The prime aim behind the festival is to create an environment in which Nevisian heritage and indigenous customs would be celebrated.

Although, the timing of the annual event is especially significant as it coincides with the observance of the 1838 emancipation of African slaves throughout the British Empire in the Caribbean. This is a major milestone in the island’s history as Nevisians are primarily of African descent.

After a rocky period in the mid-1980s, the festival has now established itself as a key date in the calendar. Travellers who visit the country to witness the beauty through these festivals would struggle to tell the festival apart from many other Caribbean carnivals; through many of its events, Cultarama does strive to maintain its original purpose of preserving and promoting the local culture and heritage.

With all these festivals, St Kitts and Nevis boost the different sectors in the country especially, the tourism. It uplifts the activities of the Culturama festival with an aim to spread it across the globe and assist the people in different sectors such as:

  • To assist the culturally minded creative, and dedicated persons in serving on the Nevis Culturama Committee.
  • To attain sponsorship from corporate organizations and individuals within the business community.
  • To create an awareness among the citizens of Nevis and various international communities with regard to the heritage and indigenous culture of the twin-island Federation.
  • To educate the populace in order to develop a sense of pride for Culturama, which drives them to contribute towards the development and sustenance of the country.
  • To increase the participation of the talented people so that the festival could go ahead successfully.
  • To create a festive atmosphere each year to serve the stimulation for greater involvement in the festival from Kittens and Nevisians at home and abroad.
  • To preserve the dying folk tradition of St Kits and Nevis.
  • To host costume designing and building workshops with an aim to install these skills in interested citizens of St Kitts and Nevis.
  • To offer a forum for local artists in the various disciplines to develop and flourish and showcase their skills and talents.
  • To provide the financial assistance of the corporate business community to fuel the festival and reduce the dependency on the government for financial assistance.
