ABFC MEETS WITH 2015 BARBUDA CARIBANA COMMITTEEThursday 22nd January 2015
The Antigua Barbuda Festival Commission (ABFC), is pleased to report that dialog has commenced with the 2015 Barbuda Caribana Committee with a thrust to the revitalization of Caribana, which is scheduled for May 21 to 25, 2015.
A team from the Barbuda Caribana Commitee met with the ABFC on Wednesday January 21 at the National Festivals Office (NFO) in an effort to chart the way forward with clear guide lines. Already established is a February target for the official launch date for Caribana.
During discussions, both parties toyed with an idea of introducing to the Caribana’s itinerary a Breakfast fete and Party Monarch Competition.
ABFC Chairman, Mr. Cliff Williams stated “just like Antigua’s Carnival so too Barbuda’s Caribana need a lot of work if we are going to get these festivals right. Both need a serious revision with concentration on the offering emitted to our patrons. My personal objective is to have an attendance of ten (10) to fifteen (15) percent of both population in attendance of each respective festivals’ events.” The Chairman further went on to state “with this intention it means all hands on deck as this will require a lot of team work”.
The ABFC has also committed collaborative professional services for Event Planning, Logistical and Marketing support to the 2015 Barbuda Caribana Committee.
