Tobago: Tobago is celebrating its Rich Heritage at the 36th Annual Tobago Heritage Festival. The tourists had an incredible time at the Opening Gala of the 36th Annual Tobago Heritage Festival, held at the Shaw Park Complex. 

The event was graced with the grand finale of the Ms Tobago Heritage Personality Competition, where the seven contestants showcased their poise in their evening gowns. 

 Melinda Alfred of Delicia’s Dance Agency secured victory in the competition, and authorities extended greetings to all the participants who remarkably showcased their pose and grace. 

The Ms Tobago Heritage Personality Competition was proudly sponsored by First Citizens. The electrifying Tobago Heritage Calypso Monarch competition is also part of the celebration. The air was filled with infectious rhythms and powerful lyrics as calypso artists battled for the prestigious title. In the end, it was Ms Garvé Sandy who was crowned the 2023 Tobago Heritage Calypso Monarch. 

“We captured some of the magical moments from the gala, preserving memories of laughter, dance, and the spirit of togetherness. Check out the photo album to relive the experience, “said the ministry. 

One of the most anticipated events in the Tobago Heritage Festival Calendar, Charlotteville Natural Treasures Day, was an incredible celebration of our cultural roots.

The festivities kicked off on Monday with the invocation at Fort Campbleton, which was followed by a trek to various activity points. The rhythm of the Tamboo Bamboo Band and the folk songs sung by talented women accompanied the procession.

Each stop unveiled a glimpse into the past with captivating customs on display. From the solemn washing of the dead bed to the lively cocoa dance and the age-old art of cutting wood in a saw pit, it was a true journey through time.

Last Saturday, the streets of Plymouth came alive with the infectious energy of J’ouvert and the captivating charm of Ole Time Carnival. From the crack of dawn, the party ignited with lively music, dancing, and revelry as locals and visitors alike embraced the true spirit of Tobago’s heritage. 

The countries are officially midway through the 2023 Tobago Heritage Festival, and they’re thrilled to share this captivating creation by the island’s very own Animation Studio, E-Pixl Studios, in partnership with the Eco-Industrial Development Company of Tobago.

Pembroke Heritage Park will feature an unforgettable evening of cultural significance and experience the rituals and flavours as we celebrate this Thanksgiving festival, honouring both the living and our cherished ancestors.
