What Will This Year’s Calendar of Events Include?

Shari Williams

But aside from the long list of festivals that will be held over the course of the year, the events within the September Celebrations Calendar will see thousands of Belizeans within the Diaspora come back home to participate. The National Celebrations Commission has hit the ground running and today, Communications Officer for NICH, Shari Williams, took the opportunity to call on organizers to send in specifics on their respective events.

“The national celebration commission has kicked off the planning session for the year. The year is fast going and September is right around the corner. So we’ve sent out two calls; one for a call for inclusion. We are asking people who have some ideas or some event that they would like to have during the month of September, in collaboration with our September celebrations, to send in that event. Tell us about your event: the date, the place, a little write up about it so that we can start preparing our calendar of events. As you know, people in the Diaspora always ask for these calendars early because that is how they decide how they are going to travel to come to Belize. So the deadline to submit that inclusion for the calendar is May twenty-ninth. They can email it at septembercelebrations@gmail.com or they can drop it off here at the Bliss or the House of Culture in Belize City.”

“Is there any specification for those events? Does it have to have a patriotic aspect to it or it’s just anything in general, once it falls within the month of September?

 

Shari Williams

“Well we are looking for events within the months of August and September. Definitely we are looking for events that have a cultural aspect to it. We are looking for anything: it could be…you know the celebration is two-part—both educational and festive. So it can be a grand old festive event or it can be something more educational like a conference or something.”
