“For The Love Of Culture” is the theme for this year’s Festival. According to new CEO Mrs. Carol Roberts-Reifer, a key change from this year is to have both NCF-organized and private Crop Over events jointly promoted ie. “no more we and then”. While emphasizing unity, Roberts-Reifer also challenged stakeholders to uphold standards by ensuring their events “are slickly produced and can stand up against any event in the world.”
Crop Over, co-ordinated by the National Cultural Foundation, is Barbados’ premier summer festival celebrated this year with official events May 4 – August 5. While music and feting no doubt drive the festival, what makes it stand apart, is the commitment to preserve Bajan culture – with the inclusion of visual art, craft, literary art, culinary art, dance and drama within the official calendar.
