New York celebrates Caribbean Week
The Caribbean resiliency will be centre stage as visitors from the region join the New York diaspora for a lively spiritual celebration highlighted by inspirational words from religious leaders and uplifting performances during a revival for the Caribbean programme.
The program will feature gospel performances and motivational messages by talented and accomplished Caribbean nationals, all out to show their support for Caribbean nations affected by last year’s hurricanes and to give thanks for the recovery efforts.
The Revival for the Caribbean will include an opening note by Hugh Riley, Secretary General and CEO, Caribbean Tourism Organization.
The Caribbean Week New York 2018 will be momentous as this year as the Big Apple’s 8.5 million residents get a taste of the re-energising and rejuvenating power of Caribbean wellness. During the week-long event (June 3 – 8), the wellness theme will be incorporated into many activities, including a trade show and educational forum for travel agents on how to sell the Caribbean as a wellness destination.
