During the Easter Week end, Oistins becomes a riot of
celebration, as the fishing community celebrate in the only way they know
by CARLOS ATWELL
Hundreds of people descended on Oistins, Christ Church, to experience another year of fun and competition and both were in high supply, under the watchful eye of the Royal Barbados Police Force.
From the boat competition, to the much anticipated FirstCaribbean Bank-sponsored dolphin skinning and Chefette-sponsored fish-boning competitions, to the all-new fish fry competition, there was something for everyone. < Read more >
Congaline Music Festival
St. James festivals
Founded in 1993 to develop the culture and love of classical music, Holders Festival is held annually in March at Holders House.
Experience classical concerts performed under the stars, with quality singers and musicians assembled for a classical musical treat.
Mr. Alfred Pragnell, a popular local commentator, was the originator of the Holetown Festival, he thought it was time for Barbadians to take note of their rich cultural history. With the help of friends the concept of the Holetown Festival developed. The festival was opened in February 1977 by the then Senator Lionel Craig. It has grown into the 'peoples festival' allowing a wide cross section of our divers community to benefit – financially, culturally, and spiritually. In mid February every year the festival celebrates the discovery of our beautiful land by the British. The streets are filled with stalls selling local food and handicrafts. There is a choice to suit every taste from Chinese to Indian, African to American, Caribbean and European. Music is perfuse and the atmosphere electric as local dancers perform and stilt men strut about twelve foot tall!
