Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of International Creole Day

Jounen Kwéyòl (Creole Day) is celebrated in Dominica and Saint Lucia on the last Sunday of October across both islands, and has been held annually since 1984. In 1981, Saint Lucia celebrated Creole Day for the first time. Since then this celebration of French Creole Heritage has extended into a month of music, dance, cuisine, art and other cultural expression. The event is a celebration of the richness and diversity of Saint Lucia’s cultural, ethnic and artistic heritage. With musical, theatrical and other performances, seminars and lectures, a variety of culinary experiences, street parties, art exhibitions, the Festival culminates on the weekend of October 28 with the celebration of International Creole Day (Jounen Kweyol) in various communities throughout the island.
