Kako Kafé Fête – Cocoa and Coffee Festival
1 April @ 10:00 am - 2 April @ 6:00 pm
Kako Kafé Fête (Patios for Cocoa and Coffee Festival).
We the members of the Tortuga Village Council will be hosting a Two Day Cocoa and Coffee Festival on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd of April, 2023 at the TORTUGA RECREATION GROUND, Mayo Road, Tortuga.
The Community of Tortuga is nestled on the scenic forested hills of the Central Range. The village has become a food basket for our nation, providing a varied number of crops including our prized cocoa. Traditionally Cocoa and coffee were our mainstays and today still command an integral part of our landscape.
This festival is branded “Tortuga Kako Kafé Fête,” in Patois, the language most used by the traditional Cocoa and Coffee farmers. Our aim is to create a forum for farmers, Value Added Product Manufacturers, Ministerial Professionals, Agri Service Providers and the general public to meet in the forum thus providing the much-needed impetus to the Cocoa and Coffee sector.
On Saturday booths will open at 10 am. The day will also include an official opening ceremony and a concert from 7 pm featuring the 2023 CSM Daddy Chinee. On the 2nd, the morning will begin with a 5k run or walk or a 15k ride (bike). Booths will open at 8 am on this day and will also include a car show from 2 pm.
