Bankra Caribbean Culture Festival is an annual event that celebrates the rich culture and tradition of the Caribbean. It is a one-day festival which until last year usually took place on the lush grounds of St. Albans Park in Southeast Queens. The social distancing guidelines which were introduced because of the outbreak of Covid-19 made the event be held online for the first time in the year 2020. The festival is dedicated to showcasing Caribbean culture, history, lifestyle, traditions, and customs, through folk music, arts, and theatre. This year’s event is set to feature a live performance from Shurwayne Winchester and many other artists and entertainers. Other activities to enjoy in the festival includes arts and crafts, storytelling, and panel discussions.
“It is commendable to know that last year’s online edition of the festival was our first virtual edition and we were excited with the success of the event. This year’s festival will also be virtual and it promises to be equally amazing”, said the company’s Executive Director. “Our mission is to bring Caribbean folk culture, artists, music, stories, movement, and theatre into prominent spaces while also achieving greater recognition for our various art forms. We are glad as a company because we can make the difference even in a time social distancing guidelines still being observed in the city”, he added.
