ROSEAU, Dominica – January 27, 2023 -- Dominica’s ‘Real Mas’ is overflowing with enticing events which were presented at the recent Carnival press conference hosted by the Dominica Festivals Committee.
The popular Viva La Carnival cooler event entertainment organizer, NexConnex, promoted a secure and enjoyable Carnival experience. “Infinite767 and NexConnex have partnered together to offer a VIP experience with all the bells and whistles,” said Cecilia St. Hilaire. Persons interested in attending can contact NexConnex Committee members, Depex, Garraway and online.
The event takes place on Carnival Saturday, February 18th, at 4PM, at the Newtown Savannah. Weekly calypso events include Stardom Tent and Mas Camp which showcases the musical talent of about two dozen calypsonians competing for the throne. Stardom Tent is held every Wednesday night at Petit Miami, with Mas Camp being held every Friday night at M&G Jerk Hut – both in Castle Comfort. Mas Camp’s calypsonians joined those of Stardom Tent on January 25th for a special edition called ‘Clash of the Tents,’ as Stardom Tent continues its celebration of a remarkable milestone – its 50-year anniversary.
