St. John Arts Festival: Music, Bands, Dancing
February 17 @ 1:00 pm
The St. John Arts Festival will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary next year, continuing to bring to the fore the history, tradition and culture of the indigenous people of St. John in its many forms, including music, dance, arts and crafts. President’s Day is the highlight of the week-long event, commencing with the music of traditional “scratch band” Koko and the Sunshine Band, with hand-made instruments and jaunty songs. Later there will be colorful dancers and a towering Moko Jumbie, reviving old dances such as the bamboula from the long ago past and the superstitions of chasing away evil spirits in the trees.
