Events and Festivals in Cape Verde
No wonder Cape Verde is called
the land of festivals.
Cape Verde is a small and diverse archipelago with its varying landscape, rich bio-diversity and even more diverse culture. Our diverse cultural and religious heritage is depicted in events that extend throughout the year at festivals and pilgrimages on every island. Every day is a day of celebration for one or the other community. We celebrate to the sound of the drums and the exciting music of the carnival, when we are not dancing our traditional music with hot and sensual rhythms, immortalized by the "queen of bare feet" Cesaria Évora. We also celebrate our heritage and culture through delicious local cuisines or wearing traditional costumes.
