Jamaica Gleaner - - ARTS & EDUCATION -

THE IN­STI­TUTE of Ja­maica (IOJ) is pleased to an­nounce Her­itage Fest 2016 un­der the theme Our Her­itage, Your Fes­ti­val, which will be held on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 28, at 10 a.m. at our head of­fice, 10-16 East Street, down­town Kingston.

Her­itage Fest 2016 is a oneday cul­tural event that presents his­toric and folk­lore sto­ries about Ja­maica through an­i­mated pro­grammes such as can­dy­mak­ing demon­stra­tions, sto­ry­telling, drum­ming, mu­seum tours, mul­ti­cul­tural dis­plays, and a live con­cert fea­tur­ing the Bare Es­sen­tials Band.

Through mu­sic, dance, arts and crafts, arte­facts, and en­gag­ing pre­sen­ta­tions, we re­mind per­sons of our rich and di­verse past. In ad­di­tion to the above­men­tioned clas­sics, this year’s Her­itage Fest will fea­ture a few new el­e­ments: Vis­i­tors will en­joy de­li­cious Ja­maican cui­sine, an ar­ray of lo­cal herbs and spices, jew­ellery, crafts, and our Down­town Bus Tour at af­ford­able prices. There will also be a Farmer’s Mar­ket as well as fun ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren.

We are invit­ing ev­ery­one to tour our his­toric build­ings and grounds. Ad­mis­sion is free.
