Point Fortin Borough Day

May 9

A full two weeks of celebrations beginning the week before Borough Day with mas, pan, parties and even J’ouvert to celebrate Point Fortin’s 41st year as a Borough.

In the 1980s, when the Borough was facing tough times the celebration was conceptualized to bring economic relief to the burgess by promoting simple bed-and-breakfast initiatives with returning nationals in mind. In a few years, it developed into one of the largest national events outside Carnival, with entrepreneurs from all over setting up shop over the month-long celebration. The festival attracts more than 30,000 people annually, including thousands of returning nationals and foreigners.
