Integrating Aruba's culture into our tourism has always been an important element of our tourism, so it was no surprise that the Carubbian Festival was founded to bring together the elements of Aruba, other caribbean islands, other nations and you, our visitors.
Held every Thursday in San Nicolas (also known as 'Sunrise City') located on the south of the island, this festival is a perfect way to get familiarized with this multicultural city.
The Carubbian Festival brings together many different cultural heritages and ethnicities on these spectacular nights as one big melting pot, to showcase their traditions through song (live bands), art (by locals) , culture, cuisine(local and international), crafts( by locals) and much more.
Whether dancing along in the colorful Mini Carnival to the sounds of live bands performing, indulging in exceptional cuisine or purchasing locally crafted souvenirs, the Carubbian Festival is guaranteed to exceed your expectations. Come celebrate and experience multi nations on this One Happy Island.
