Emancipation Day Menu Plan 2011

Posted By Sarina On July 26, 2011 @ 10:05 am In holidays and festivals,Trini Scenes | Comments Disabled

August 1st is Emancipation Day in Trinidad and Tobago, a public holiday. Trinidad and Tobago was the first country in the world to commemorate the abolition of slavery with a national observance, and since that time several other countries (mostly in the Caribbean) have followed suit.

For quite a few years now the last week in July, building up to the holiday (August 1), has been set aside for a series of festivals, lectures, films and fairs [1] in honour of the occasion.

This year the African Food Festival is being held on the Sunday before the actual holiday – (click here for my writeup of the 2010 Fair [2]!)
