The Nevis Mango & Food Festival 2017 is a weekend of culinary enjoyment celebrating the mango and culinary excellence. It occupies four days of dining experiences, cooking demonstrations and master cook-along classes conducted by international and local celebrity chefs as well as a mango beach celebration on Nevis’ most famous beach. It all climaxes with the Nevisian Chefs Mango Feast, an event highlighting the essence of the festival, culinary creativity and skill, with Mango as the focus.

This year the people of Nevis celebrate 43 years of Culturama and the first ever Homecoming Celebration where we twin Culturama with a celebration of our people in the Diaspora and an invitation for them to come home to Nevis and rekindle their historical and emotional bonds with their homeland.

Nevis for Culturama 43 and Nevis first ever Homecoming celebration from July 27th to August 8th, 2017.

The Nevis Dramatic and Cultural Society’s main purposes for this Cultural Festival are:

  • To give a vital thrust to our dying traditional customs.
  • To stimulate an interest in the wealth of our cultural heritage (local folk art).
  • To receive and create a climate in which indigenous folklore can reassert itself and flourish. And of course a secondary purpose was to raise
  • funds to build a Community Center to serve as a necessary base for the projection of Cultural Awareness Programmes.
