The lineup is out for FLOW’s Creole in the Park highly anticipated after a two-year hiatus.

FLOW General Manager, Jeffery Baptiste says the event signifies their commitment to preserving Dominica’s cultural heritage.

This year, the event promises three days to highlight over thirty performing acts.

Speaking at the Creole in the Park 2019 media launch on Wednesday, October 2nd, Baptist expressed that the annual event is more than just an activity, but a means of economic contribution and so he is pleased with the support of an amalgamation of businesses who come onboard annually.

“This is probably the only event in Dominica which has corporate partners coming together for the same cause which has always been the preservation and promotion of our culture and heritage. We have never had any significant resistance from our corporate partners.”

He assures that despite the event’s dormancy for the past 2 years, due to the passing of Hurricane Maria in 2017, Creole in the Park is here to stay.

“I want to take the opportunity to say now that we are absolutely committed to the event. We will consistently and regularly budget for it annually. We are trying to be more cost-efficient like everybody else and a responsible business entity in the execution of the event but we do it with a level of passion which will not be diminished in any way.” 

The 14th annual creole in the park is scheduled for Tuesday 22nd to Thursday 24th October.

According to the lineup, on Tuesday October 22nd promises the likes of the Smith Brothers, Colton T, Chubby and the Midnight Groovers, Swinging Stars Band and the Calypso Connection featuring Webb, Lugarz, Observer, Tasha P, Checko, Intruder Bobb, Karessah, Sour Sour and reigning Calypso King, Dennison ‘Dice’ Joseph.

Meanwhile on Wednesday, October 23rd patrons should expect performances by Phase 5, the New Generation of Bouyon Artistes Named Zone Rouge, Quan, Trilla G, DJ MJ, Fetty Mark, Keks Mafia and Reo along with Extasy Band, WCK, Signal Band. Shal Marshall of Trinidad of Tobago will bring the curtains down.
