Holetown Festival 2019 February 10 - 17, This is the town where eighty English settlers landed on February 17, 1627. After that fateful landing, Barbados became a British colony. A week-long festival with cultural and musical performances, a colourful parade, pageant, art and craft exhibition, a street fair and more, now marks this occasion today. One of the most anticipated events of the festival is the Grand Floodlit Tattoo, which sees a stellar performance by the island’s police force, displaying their dexterity beyond policing.
