Christmas Grand Market: A Caribbean Christmas Celebration

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Braata Productions presents the annual Christmas Grand Market: A Caribbean Christmas experience. This year's event returns to an in-person format after going virtual last year due to the pandemic. The Christmas Grand Market keeps alive the old, rural Jamaican Christmas tradition by showcasing authentic folk forms of fine and culinary arts, dancing, and music. Featured will be the Jonkanoo parade. An integral part of the Grand Market experience, the Jonkanoo parade celebrates the Caribbean's unique blend of African and European cultures through a procession of revelers depicting colonial-era characters including revolutionaries, subversive agitators, clever pranksters, and entertainers. Festivities include Caribbean food, crafts, and gifts from local vendors, live music and dancing, games, and prizes. Cultural exhibitions and storytelling performances will be on display to honor the Market's heritage and provide historical context to the celebration.
