In two years’ time – in 2021, Antigua and Barbuda will have the opportunity to continue the rich tradition of showcasing the Caribbean when they host CARIFESTA XV in August, 2021.
For Antigua and Barbuda, the hosting of CARIFESTA XV in 2021 coincides with the 40th year of our young nation’s post-Independence era. This alignment of stars gives us an opportunity to harness the consciousness of our people and the attention of our collective diaspora to commit to playing a greater role in uniting our people, and capitalizing on our Caribbean uniqueness in establishing our region as an Economic and Cultural Juggernaut.
