Do not miss the 11th annual battle of the drums competition in Punta Gorda

Battle of the Drums & Food Fete

Battle of the Drums in Punta Gorda

From November 11-13, 2016, the town of Punta Gorda will play host to the 11th annual Battle of the Drums and Food and Fete competition.

The festival celebrates the pride and musical traditions of Belize’s Garifuna culture with dozens of Garifuna music bands competing for the grand prize in a variety of styles like Punta, Chumba, Wanaragua, Hungu, and Paranda.

The festival will begin at 7:30 PM on November 11, 2016, at the Toledo Community College in Punta Gorda Town and will continue throughout the night until 3:00 AM.

While Garifuna artists from all over the country entertain festivalgoers with their lively drumming, the Food and Fete part of the festival will give attendees the opportunity to sample savory and sweet concoctions from the rich palate of Garifuna traditional dishes, including cassava bread, tapou (fish, green banana, and root vegetable soup), hudut (a savory stew made from fish, coconut, and bananas), and cassava pudding.

As part of the Food and Fete part of the festival, there will be a Taste of Garifuna competition with top local cooks battling to whip up the tastiest dish.
