Frank Langley, president of the Festival origanization, said the six days of events and activities will "trace back to the original formation of the island some 100 million years ago under the sea until the present day using the media of arts, crafts, music and drama to portray the natural and anthropological history of the island."
Each day there will be a concert in Cruz Bay Park. Musicians to be featured include Inner Visions, the Love City Pan Dragons Youth Steel Orchestra, Koko and the Sunshine Band, and St. John Church Choirs. And of course West Indian crafts and food will be offered each day from Noon to 5 p.m. (Great hot sauces!!!)

including those of children, with special “Meet the Artists” nights
