Holetown Festival 2017


The Holetown Festival, taking place this year from 12th to 19th February, is a celebration to commemorate British settlers and Barbados becoming a British Colony in 1627. The first festival took place in 1977, originally over a weekend. It has since become so popular, that it now stretches out over an eight-day period running from Sunday to Sunday.

Entertainment includes free open-air concerts featuring a variety of music, such as Gospel, Classical, Tuk Band and Calypso, as well as Folk Dancing, presented in free open-air concerts. There is also an Arts and Craft Exhibition, a display called “Beating the Retreat” presented by the Barbados Defence Force, and a Flood Lit Tattoo which is put on by the Police and a parade of Vintage Motor Vehicles.

On the Saturday, there is a Street Fair, where vendors offer a wide, cross section of Barbadian Arts and Crafts, as well as local foods and beverages.

The festival has proved to be popular with tourists and locals alike.

On the final day of the festival, Sunday 19th, don’t miss the Queen of the Festival Pageant. The pageant will feature six beautiful contestants and be held at the Auditorium of the Frederick Smith Secondary School. Admission for this special event is $30.00 and tickets will be sold at the door.
