More About International Creole Day 🎡🎭

28th October is the International Creole day as proclaimed by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO). Every year since 1983, the day has been an opportunity to celebrate the Creole language and culture across countries and communities sharing Creole, that is, more than 10 million people around the world. Jounen KwΓ©yΓ²l (Creole Day) is celebrated in Dominica and Saint Lucia. In Dominica it is observed on the last Friday in October. In Saint Lucia, it is observed on the last Sunday of October. In 1981, Saint Lucia celebrated Creole Day for the first time. Since then this celebration of French Creole Heritage has extended into a month of music, dance, cuisine, art and other cultural expressions. The event is a celebration of the richness and diversity of Saint Lucia’s cultural, ethnic and artistic heritage. With musical, theatrical and other performances, seminars and lectures, a variety of culinary experiences, street parties, art exhibitions, the Festival culminates on the weekend of October 28th with the celebration of International Creole Day (Jounen Kweyol) in various communities throughout the island.
