Garifuna Settlement Day in Caye Caulker?

Are there celebrations or festivals held in Caye Caulker for Garifuna Settlement Day? My cousin & I are planning to be there during that time & would be appreciative of any information!

hi yas~

settlement day is celebrated mostly in dangriga and hopkins, where there are lots of garifuna people living. caye caulker is historically more creole but has a very mixed population because so many people have moved there for work or business opportunities. i doubt there are any noteable settlement day celebrations in CC.

cheers,

Hi cascole:

While CC is not as festive as other parts of Belize on Garifuna Settlement Day, there is still plenty of indigenous drumming and merrymaking that happens.

Thanks and cheers,
