The Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation (MOTIA), in partnership with the Junkanoo Corporation of New Providence (JCNP), is bringing back its largest iconic cultural event, the Junkanoo Summer Festival, after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic. The well-known summer festival will be bigger and better than ever this year and will take place at Arawak Cay on four Saturdays in July (2nd, 16th, 23rd, and 30th) from 12 p.m. to midnight, immediately across from the Fish Fry. The 9th of July will not feature the Junkanoo Summer Festival due to the Independence Day celebrations.

Locals and tourists can learn about Bahamian culture and heritage in a fun and secure setting. At the Festival grounds, there will be booths selling genuine Bahamian-made goods, cultural exhibits, a museum dedicated to Junkanoo, bread baking in a rock oven, and much more. For those who enjoy food and drink, there will be more than 24 vendors offering a wide range of native delicacies and beverages. Sip and Paste will participate in the heritage experience for the first time, offering festival guests the ability to customize their very own Junkanoo costume for $50.

All day long, festival goers can take part in activities like historical competitions, culinary and mixology events, and a Kids Heritage Corner. A-category groups for Junkanoo Each Saturday on the Arawak Cay grounds, One Family, Genesis, Saxons, Roots, and Valley Boys will enliven festivalgoers’ spirits with a colorful and energetic performance.

After the rush out, the entertainment will continue with high-octane performances by a who’s who of the nation’s top musical acts, including Scorch Conch, Da Rhythm Band, Shadow Band, Qpid, Nishie L.S., Lassie Doh Boys, Soulful Groovers, Shad Collie & VIPs, Shine, Fanshawn, Blaudy, The Falcons, Visage, Spank band, Dyson Knight, Veronica Bishop, Funky
