Pa­trons of Do­minica’s Jazz ‘n Cre­ole will have to plan a lit­tle ahead for the an­nual fam­ily event as the fes­ti­val will be held ear­lier in 2019. Marva Wil­liams, Fes­ti­vals and Events Man­ager (Ag) at Dis­cover Do­minica Au­thor­ity says, “In keep­ing with the man­date to grow the fes­ti­val, and par­tic­u­larly the vis­it­ing jazz and mu­sic lovers, the DDA set out to find a date that will min­i­mize com­pe­ti­tion of our tar­get mar­kets, yet still pro­vide a hol­i­day week­end for the many and loyal pa­trons re­sid­ing on Do­minica. As such, Jazz ‘n Cre­ole 2019 will be a three-day event from May 3–5, 2019 with the sig­na­ture main­stage event held on Sun­day May 5, 2019.”
