CHANT Presents an Evening of Jumbie Talk, Hiking, Music and Food

Crucian Heritage And Nature Tourism Inc. (CHANT) presents Jumbie Talk, a night of storytelling at Mt. Victory Camp from 5 p.m. until the Jumbie Dem Run We! on Saturday, Aug. 21.

CHANTis gathering the best of St. Croix’s storytellers, cooks and musicians for an evening of family entertainment. Jumbie Talk will feature storytellers regaling the audience with their best jumbie stories. Audience members are also invited to the open mic to try their hand at jumbie storytelling. (For those who may be wondering, jumbie stories are ghost stories.)
The evening will kick off with the drummers call, followed by a hike down Creque Dam Road led by Veronica Gordon, St. Croix’s Bush Lady.
Bully and the Musical Kafooners will provide entertainment, old style quelbe music with traditional dancing throughout the night. Dinner will be served at 7:30 p.m. The feast is a collection of Crucian dishes provided by West End Grill, Pier 69 and Uca’s Kitchen.
Enjoy all of this for only $10 for adults, $5 for children. Dinner tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children. Tickets are on sale now at Dive Experience in Christiansted, Applause in Sunny Isle, Polly’s at the Pier on Frederiksted waterfront and CHANT’s office behind Polly’s. Tickets will also be sold at the gate. (Bring a chair or blanket to sit on the hillside at Mt. Victory Camp).
CHANT is a local non-profit agency that seeks to “establish heritage and nature as both the lead tourism product for St. Croix and as the vehicle for sustainable community development.”
