About Cayfest

Cayfest, also known as The Cayman Islands National Festival of the Arts, occurs every February with help from the Cayman National Cultural Foundation. The local artists of the islands come together to show the culture of the area through their work. Nearly every type of art is featured: you will see visual arts, music, theatre, film, fashion design, and even cultural discussions. It will open your eyes to what the Caymans truly are.

Dress for Culture Day

Cayfest usually kicks off with Dress for Culture Day. During this day, the public is invited to dress to represent where their ancestors are from. The Grand Caymans are made up of more than 100 nationalities, so this is the perfect way to symbolize the many cultures these islands are made up of. The Cayman National Cultural Foundation asks for a $5 donation from adults if they dress up.

Red Sky at Night

Red Sky at Night is one of the most popular aspects of Cayfest and is a main event that the whole family can enjoy. Every year, many gather at the Harquail Cultural Centre Grounds in George Town from 4:00 pm until midnight. Every type of art is represented here by the best artists, actors, and singers on the island. During this arts fair, you will get to see live performances by dancers, musicians, storytellers, and actors. Visual arts and crafts such as vibrant paintings and textiles are also available for viewing as well as featured films.
