Tobago Heritage Festival 2015 August 4, 2015

Tobagonians are very proud of their heritage, so it is fitting that they celebrate this year round with the Tobago Heritage Festival that celebrates the very essence of their culture and history.

Created to preserve the unique cultural traditions of Tobago, the Festival has grown from year to year attracting thousands as they celebrate as communities and welcome new guests. Villagers from different communities come out in their glory to perform folk singing, dancing and feasting. Traditional costumes are worn to depict village life from the early 1900’s.

During the entire Festival, returning Tobagonians and visitors alike are able to visit the many quaint and friendly villages to experience their way of life, language and various old traditions. Each village hosts a different event ranging from dancing, ole time mas, limbo and jig stick fighting and of course, an array of culinary delights.

Our top picks…

The Tobago Blue Food Festival

Held in the coastal village of Bloody Bay during October, the festival offers a unique chance to experience dasheen with a twist. Also known as Taro, this low in sodium and gluten-free root crop becomes the main attraction of the festival with 25 cooks creating dynamic, tantalizing dishes using dasheen, that are not only tasty, but healthy as well. Come and sample the innovative entrees, inventive appetizers, creative desserts and wash them down with a nice cold drink.Eat and dance the day away as there will be live entertainment to keep you amused. There is even a crayfish catching competition in the nearby Bloody Bay Main River.

Folk Fiesta

Taking place in October, the Folk Fiesta is The Heritage Festival’s very own version of the X-factor, where performers showcase their artistry and talents in Folk music, dance and drumming. Enjoy the day taking part in traditional Tobago dance and Folk singing before settling down for the main competition. The Fiesta is a brilliant day that the whole family can enjoy. We just hope the judges aren’t as mean as Simon!

Experience Tobago like never before and immerse yourself in their amazing culture in this one of a kind Heritage festival.
