Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.

Archive for May, 2011


Dominica to host its 2nd Annual Jazz ‘n Creole at the historic Fort Shirley on Pentecost Sunday June 12, 2011.

The Show was born last year in May and was initially called Creole N All that Jazz. The name was changed this year to Jazz ‘n Creole since the Discover Dominica Authority was essentially borrowing the name from someone else last year.

The event takes place on Sunday June 12, 2011 from 2:00 – 9:00pm, at Cabrits National Park which is situated in the Northern end of the island in the 2nd town of Portsmouth.

This is the ideal venue for this event since the backdrop possesses exceptional views of the tranquil Caribbean Sea.

The Cabrits is the location of one of the old English Forts in the Caribbean, Fort Shirley and thus is one of our historical sites we are proud of and love to showcase to visitors.

The Fort was completely renovated. Discover Dominica Authority plans to have this event correspond every year with the Pentecost holiday weekend.
