To the sounds of beating drums and festive dancing, we annually celebrate Garifuna Settlement Day on November 19th. A day set to honor the arrival of the Garifuna culture to our Belizeans shores in dugout canoes back in 1802, the holiday celebrates with much pride and revelry.

In San Pedro Town, the local branch of the National Garifuna Council has prepared a vibrant calendar of activities under this year’s national theme: “Lererun Garifuna Laguchabei Labagaridun Garifunaduau! – Garifuna Language is the Foundation of Garifuna Survival!” Festivities will peak on Monday, November 18th, the eve of the 186th anniversary of Garifuna Settlement Day with the crowning of the Miss Garifuna San Pedro 2019, live cultural presentations, music, and of course drumming all night long to bring in the 19th.
