Soufriere Creole Jazz & Arts Festival “A Party Under The Pitons”
PRESS RELEASE – Advertised under the tag line, “Come enjoy the time, party under the pitons”, Soufriere Creole Jazz and Arts Festival 2016 will come alive with a one-day arts and cultural day/night fiesta on the Soufriere Waterfront on Saturday, April 30, followed by its signature musical expose at the Soufriere mini-stadium on Sunday, May 1, 2016.
This year’s festival promises to deliver great music and an authentic St. Lucian arts and cultural experience with great entertainers, uniquely Soufriere craft, exquisite cuisine, and great steel pan expositions.
In response to demands that the solely musical event evolves from a one-day event into an experience which guarantees that there is never a dull moment, an arts and cultural element was added. This component of the festival will be hosted in collaboration with the Cultural Development Foundation and will showcase local craft, a community art collage, and live musical performances from steel pan groups from the south of the island and one Soufriere musical band.
Hundreds of St. Lucians are expected to descend on the scenic community to enjoy its cultural heritage; celebrate the artistic expression and buy the works of its resident artisans, and savour Creole culinary delights.
