Dominica’s World Creole Music Festival Roadshow

The Dominica Roadshow that takes place in Dominica every year is a series of events that advance the World Creole Music Festival. This year’s Roadshow was held on September 30, 2023, which marked the beginning of the World Creole Music Festival.

The Roadshow was very overwhelming and outstanding. This Roadshow is also a way to promote the festivals and the culture of the place to a larger audience.

Now, Dominica is all set to host this year’s World Creole Music Festival and make it a huge success.
