BVI Emancipation Festival
British Virgin Islands Emancipation Festival – A celebration of our ancestors’ freedom from colonialism and our cultural history. During this time, we showcase the culture and history of our people in grand style with extravaganzas of local and international music, pageants, Food Fairs, Rise & Shine Tramps (early morning street dancing), parades, gospel celebrations and folklore presentations.
The BVI’s most important cultural showcase takes place at the end of July. Attend one or more of the colorful events that celebrate the British Virgin Islands’ cultural history and freedom from colonialism.
