In 1974, the Nevis Dramatic and Cultural Society (NEDACS) identified a decline in traditional dance troupes during the Christmas festival. To preserve Nevisian heritage, they introduced a fresh celebration named ‘Culturama.’ It was strategically scheduled for the August Emancipation weekend. This festival exuberantly presents a diverse array of traditional folk art forms, including dance, drama, poetry, folk singing, music, pageants, and arts and crafts. During this spirited celebration, people unite in a vivid, joyous spectacle to honour their vibrant culture and heritage.
