The Tru Tru Bahamian Festival is a celebration of “all things Bahamian” and will showcase the best of The Bahamas, just in time for Valentine’s Day! There will be delicious, authentically Bahamian food and drink, an incredible array of Bahamian made products, talented Bahamian musicians, and The Royal Bahamas Police Force band will also perform.

Every imaginable expression of creative talent will be featured, including singing, dancing, storytelling, plaiting of the Maypole, a Junkanoo Rush-out, a “Pop-Up” Junkanoo Shack, a kids' interactive corner with an “Ocean Creatures Touch Tank” and a plethora of indigenous creatures, plus Bahamian Flora and Fauna for kids to learn about.

This is a great opportunity for visitors to experience all aspects of Bahamian culture, just a short walk from the downtown area. A shuttle service will be provided from Festival Place between 11:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and Festival organizers will be on hand to greet guests as they arrive.
