Arts and Crafts festival in San Salvador Bahamas


Arts and Crafts festival in San Salvador Bahamas on Labor Day.
The night before Labor day me and some friends went to the Club Med for some great food and drinks and entertainment.

Right before the show the chef of the village announced that there will be free bus rides from Club Med to the Almond tree park that people can take to visit the San Salvador Arts and Crafts festival. I was surprised that neither me nor my friends, living on the island, even knew about the festival but I was also very excited and we made plans to go there the next day.

So, all made up and ready to go, we left the house the next day about 10.30 in the morning. As always, parking is never a problem on San Salvador. Guess we were a little too early, the food and the drinks had not arrived yet but some vendors had already set up.

The arts and crafts festival was held at the Almond tree park which has a beautiful water view.

People were selling home-made guave jam and hot goat sauce and beautiful island bracelets and earrings and necklaces from “island glass” and now I am the proud owner of my first piece of real San Sal Island jewelry.

We also bought the jam and the sauce and I can only say they are REALLY good.

For me the music was the best part of the festival, it never fails, the Bahamian rhythm always puts me in a fun mood and it is such a joy and pleasure to watch the guys play.

Another fun part of the festival was a little contest of “which one of the tourists is the most Bahamian” 3 guys out of the crowed were picked and they had to play the cow bells, it was so funny.

We stayed for 2 hours or so and had a good and fun time. Hope to see another Arts and Crafts festival on in San Salvador here in the Bahamas soon and maybe next time more vendors will set up their awesome and unique creations. (This last sentence is to motivate Mr. Kenny, the wood-carver )

This is the new Setup at Juice, the local bar here in San Salvador where the party continued after hours.
