Deputy Premier, Hon. Eric Evelyn, Minister of Culture in the Nevis Island Administration with Culturama 49 Festival Committee members

Deputy Premier, Hon. Eric Evelyn, Minister of Culture in the Nevis Island Administration (NIA) solicited the support of all of Nevis and those in the diaspora to participate in the annual summer festival to make the national event a huge success.

“Culturama is here; the vibe is here! I really want to encourage all of us Nevisians and Kittitians to be a part of the Caribbean’s greatest summer lime. Culturama is our festival. It’s important that we support the contestants and participants when they go onstage, but most importantly, I want us all to be a part of the revelry for Culturama 49. Get on the streets, be a part of J’ouvert, be a part of the troupes and parade, and let us make Culturama 49 one of the best ever.”

He expressed thanks to the sponsors of the 2023 edition of Culturama including lead sponsor Bank of Nevis International (BONI), and major sponsors FLOW, TDC Group Limited, St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla National Bank, SL Horsford Group of Companies Limited, Republic Bank St. Kitts and Nevis, Bank of Nevis Limited, Carib Brewery St. Kitts and Nevis Limited, First Federal Credit Union, Rams Trading Limited, Carib Jack, NEVLEC, and Chameleon Media.

“I know that some of the sponsorship has grown tremendously this year. We have had new sponsors come on board and we are indeed delighted to all of our sponsors. We absolutely cannot do this without you. Culturama is an expensive venture. It takes a couple of million dollars to host the festival. The Nevis Island Administration is the main sponsor but we need your partnership, we need your collaboration, and so we are indebted to all of our sponsors. We thank you so much and trust that this will continue for years to come.”

Culturama Committee Chairperson Mr. Antonio “Abonaty” Liburd revealed that there are some new events on this year’s calendar in addition to the annual pageants, competitions and fetes.
