The vibrant and energetic Tobago Heritage Festival is an annual event created to preserve the unique cultural traditions of Tobago.
Villagers from different communities come together in their splendour to perform folk songs, dancing and commit to hearty feasting.
The villagers dress up in traditional costumes that depict the spirit of the African forebears and village life from the early 1900′s. The sights sounds and smells are electrifying and enough to make you wish you were a Tobagonian!
During the entire Festival, visitors and returning Tobagonians are able to visit the many quaint and friendly villages and experience their way of life, language and varied oral traditions, culture, dances, music, environment and, of course, their culinary delights.
This year is the 25th anniversary so promises to be an extra special extravaganza of colour costumes, history and culture
