The Ministry of Tourism is closing its sizzling summer celebrations with Goombay Summer Festival at Arawak Cay every Friday this month. Coming off the heels of the Junkanoo Summer Festival, Goombay Summer Festival provides all the fun of Junkanoo, but with a different beat and feel.

Goombay showcases various cultural delights like traditional Goombay Dancers, Ring Play, Rake n’ Scrape Bands, Limbo and Fire Dancers, food demonstrations, Androsia Fashion, a Kids’ Corner, Magic Man, Face Painters, People to People Booth, a thrilling Junkanoo Rush Out and a grand Bahamian concert.

Director of Events in the Ministry of Tourism Charity Armbrister said this year’s Goombay is new and improved.
