The Ministry of Tourism has hit the mark with Goombay Summer Festival as hundreds of tourists are attracted to the event every week at Arawak Cay.

Goombay Summer Festival, a signature event of the Ministry of Tourism, has all the excitement of a family fun event with Bahamian music, games, food and crafts.

To make sure that tourists participate in the authentic Bahamian experience, ministry officials provide transportation from hotels and resorts in Nassau and Paradise Island.

Tourists are able to participate in games like crab catching, pineapple and watermelon eating contests and plaiting the maypole.
