OCTOBER: Creole Festival
A Window Into Creole Culture and History
The end of October is a time that all Seychellois and Seychelles visitors look forward to. Every year, the traditions and cultural heritage of Seychelles are celebrated at the Creole Festival, the country’s most important cultural event.
The six-day long festival takes place on the main islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue. Showcasing dance, music, cuisine, customs and crafts, it gives you the chance to experience the best of Seychelles culture in just a few days!
The colourful and energetic performances include a float event, musical shows, traditional dance, art galleries and many different fairs around the three islands. The program includes a traditional wedding so that visitors can watch and learn how the Seychellois tie the knot in true style! A grand ball that goes on until the early hours of the morning sees the festival off in true style.
This year, the festival will be celebrated on 23-29 October.
