Charles Town Maroon Conference & Festival – Jamaica

The island of Jamaica has the most festivals with something happening every month. In June, the country will host the 11th Annual Charles Town Maroon Conference & Festival which seeks to not only celebrate the Maroons who played a significant role in changing the history of Jamaica but also make the celebrations more significant with several conferences held in hopes to add to academia and written history.  It offers a unique combination of scholarly panels and cultural events and brings maroons and indigenous peoples together with scholars and locals to examine the ways their legacies have endured, creolised, and resonated in the Caribbean, Africa, Canada, Australia, South America, the United Kingdom and Europe, and the United States. This year, the festival will be held from June 21 to June 23. The festival also entails cultural performances and display of all things of historical significance.
