Patrons of Dominica’s Jazz ‘n Creole can expect a real treat at this year’s main stage event in the Jazz ‘n Creole programme which also features several fringe events at venues across the island and in particular, the north.
Dominica’s Jazz ‘n Creole has become a staple on the entertainment calendar held on Pentecost Sunday and features a family event, providing relaxing jazz music and activities for children. Patrons can therefore anticipate stirring Caribbean rhythms on violins played by the Xavier sisters as well as the melodious harmony of Michele’s voice.

Attendees are encouraged to display their patriotism by incorporating some aspect of ‘Creole’ in their outfits for Jazz ‘n Creole 2018. In doing so, a lucky individual will have the opportunity to a win ticket for this year’s World Creole Music Festival carded for October 26 – 28, 2018.

The 9th edition of Dominica’s Jazz ‘n Creole is proudly presented by the Government of Dominica through Ministry of Tourism and Culture and Discover Dominica Authority alongside headline sponsor Range Developments. Range Developments are developers of the Cabrits Resort Kempinski which will be opened in 2019.
