The Kwéyòl Market is a platform for creative expression and commerce for Saint Lucian painters, designers, jewelry makers, sculptors, musicians, dancers, actors and confectioners, as well as other artistes, and is the perfect opportunity to showcase uniquely Saint Lucian products and services as a precursor to the Jounen Kwéyòl festivities.

The Kwéyòl Market is the brainchild of the CDF and forms part of the schedule of activities for Arts and Heritage Month, under the Soleil Summer Festival.

The two-day open-air market is slated for Oct. 26 – 27 at the Constitution Park, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. on both days. The market will serve as a one-stop-shop for those visiting the space to be immersed in, and embrace Saint Lucian Kwéyòl culture through its diverse facets.

The CDF invites all to be a part of this exciting and engaging activity. Interested persons are invited to a meeting on Monday, Oct. 16, at the CDF Conference Room located at Barnard Hill, where further information will be provided. The meeting will commence promptly at 5:30 p.m.
