Patrons of Dominica’s Jazz ‘n Creole will have to plan ahead for the annual family event as the festival will be held earlier in 2019.
Marva Williams, Festivals and Events Manager (Ag) at Discover Dominica Authority says, “In keeping with the mandate to grow the festival and particularly the visiting jazz and music lovers, the DDA set out to find a date that will minimize competition of our target markets, yet still provide a holiday weekend for the many loyal patrons residing on Dominica. As such, Jazz ‘n Creole 2019 will be a three day event from May 3 – 5, 2019 with the signature main stage event held on Sunday May 5th, 2019.”
Dominica’s Jazz ‘n Creole promotes a fusion of jazz and creole music in the scenic atmosphere of Fort Shirley at the Cabrits National Park. Targeted marketing and promotion of the 10th edition of Jazz ‘n Creole will begin during the Carnival celebrations with the overall goal to increase visitor arrivals to the island
