Annually, over the past 57 years the period between the last weeks of July and the first half of August, highlighted on Independence Day August 6, has been a period of impressive celebration in Jamaica as the nation celebrates its independence from Britain with a variety of events known as the Jamaica Festival.

However, this year, as with the case of most entertainment events in Jamaica and across the Caribbean region, the COVID-19 pandemic will negatively impact this year’s Festival. This year’s celebration will be reduced to mostly virtual. The Jamaica 58 Independence Spectacular, will be broadcast LIVE on Independence Day from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm, enclosed is the program with activities.

The theme for this year’s celebrations is: ‘Resilient and Strong…Let’s Celebrate Jamaica 58’.
