ABOUT CHRISTMAS GRAND MARKET
A throwback to a dying Jamaican rural Christmas tradition showcasing our authentic folk forms in the fine and culinary arts, dance and music genres. Forms that have emerged from our unique blend of African and European ancestry like the Jonkanoo parade, a band of revelers depict characters from the colonial era that were revolutionaries, subversive agitators, clever pranksters and entertainers.
Celebrated on Caribbean Christmas Day, the layout of the venue includes a Caribbean market with food and gift stalls a community gathering ground complete with a 'story time' area, workshops, and dance and music demonstrations, incorporating customs from other Caribbean territories thus making it a truly Caribbean Christmas celebration. The day culminates in an evening Caribbean Christmas themed concert, featuring Jonkanoo and various cultural performers.
