About Miss Caribbean Culture Queens Pageant

The Miss Caribbean Culture Queen Pageant is held annually in celebration of the Nevis Culturama Festival. The idea of Culturama was conceived in February 1974 during a meeting of the Nevis Dramatic and Cultural Society (NEDACS). The main point discussed during this meeting was the general decline in the customary folklore troupes on parade during the then Christmas festival. It was felt that much of the customary indigenous Christmas traditions and activities were dying and that there was an urgent need to revive these traditions so that they can be handed down from generation to generation thereby ensuring the posterity of Nevis’ rich cultural heritage. The Miss Caribbean Culture Queen Pageant was added to the Culturama calendar in 2006 for the first time and it has given Culturama some regional recognition because it has received participation from up to 10 different regional countries.
