Dominica’s Jazz ‘n Creole, first presented in 2010, is a fusion of jazz music with creole music, food, and culture. The family event is held annually at Fort Shirley in the Cabrits National Park during the Pentecost holiday weekend. It’s the World Creole Music Festival.

Past performers at the festival include Arturo Tappin, Michele Henderson, Marlow Rosado y la Riquena, Ronald Tulle, Alfredo de la Fe, Monty Alexander, Beethva Obas, Eric Ildefonse Quartet, Angelique Kidjo, Cameron Pierre, Heston Francis, Jacques Schwarz-Bart Trio.
