BPTT has been involved in the Tobago Heritage Festival for more than 10 years, as the sponsor of the Charlotteville presentation of “Natural Treasures” Day.
The Tobago Heritage Festival is a 14-day celebration of the island’s culture and traditions held annually from mid-July to August 1. Approximately 10-15 villages participate, with each village depicting some aspect of Tobago’s culture – dance, music, events, folklore, and traditions.
Charlotteville is situated on the northern end of the island, a drive of approximately 1 ½ hours from the capital, Scarborough.
Through bpTT's support of Charlotteville we hope to keep the traditions alive while fostering a closer relationship with the community and assisting with their sustainable development.
Charlotteville's Natural Treasures Day is a celebration of the community's rich heritage. The day begins with a trek through history which highlights several traditions and rituals. There is also a treasure hunt at Pirates Bay. The celebration culminates with a concert which features traditional dances and skits.
This year Natural Treasures day will be celebrated on July 20. The theme is "Recognition".
