Caribbean Festival 3 to 9 of July
Santiago de Cuba
The Caribbean Festival is a genuine cultural celebration which enhances the most authentic roots of the spirituality of the Cuban and Caribbean peoples. The principle of this festival has always been the acknowledgement of the deep similarities among the popular cultural expressions and traditions of Caribbean people, and the respect for popular creations, stressing always the worth of common men and woman as legitimate owners of the heritage thay have created this festival is also known, has contributed to the international promotion of the diverse aspects of the culture of Santiago de Cuba. This culture has been unmistakably marked by the African people and their Cuban descendants and by people from other areas of the Antilles. Some of them were brought to the island as slaves and other emigrated to the city.
