Patrons of Dominica’s Jazz ‘n Creole will have to plan a little ahead for the annual family event as the festival will be held earlier in 2019.
Marva Williams, Festivals and Events manager at Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) 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 and loyal patrons residing on Dominica. As such, Jazz ‘n Creole 2019 will be a three-day event from May 3-5 with the signature main stage event held on May 5.”
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.
