The Summer Junkanoo Festival is Here!

Jul 10, 2018

Summer has arrived in the Bahamas and we couldn’t be more excited. We love the extra sunshine, the super salty days and the excuse to have a cocktail and catch up on the sip’ sip’ with our neighbors. But one of the absolute best parts of these dog days is the Summer Junkanoo Festival that happens every single Saturday, until the first weekend in August! Grab your best pair of dancing sandals and make your way to Arawak Cay, for a full afternoon of dancing, goombay smashes and authentic island entertainment. Each Saturday the festival will be celebrating something different and have a cool twist on our local tradition. Pump yourself up and bring the best of your Bahamian Spirit to the party, everyone is welcome! You won’t have to wait until December to get the full Junkanoo celebration — it is one you should always seek when visiting Nassau!
