Cultural Heritage: Festivals and Events

Dominica Jazz Festival.jpg

“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”               – Susan Sontag

From villages to big cities, festivals and events bring people together to celebrate culture, heritage, cuisine or just about anything.  From religion to music, from agriculture to sports, from food to just plain fun, festivals sustain communities and encourage travel all over the world.
