Rhythms of Belize

Belize’s annual bashes are the perfect way to glimpse Belizeans’ celebratory spirit and get a taste of the music—more than six genres, each unique to a particular region and culture.

Summer Fiestas: (July) Towns celebrate their patron saints with giant fairs, games, concerts, and plenty of outdoor grills all set up inside the town stadium. Visit Benque Viejo del Carmen’s Benque Fiesta, Orange Walk’s Fiestarama, and Ambergris Caye’s Día de San Pedro.

Deer Dance Festival: (Aug.) San Antonio Village showcases all things Mayan. The highlight is a deer dance costume performance (an ancient ritual reenacting the hunting of a deer) to traditional Mayan harps.

Pan Yaad: (Sept.) This lively seaside, steelpan concert is a treat, with up to five bands from around Belize performing at Belize City’s House of Culture.

Belize City Carnival: (mid-Sept.) Belize City hosts a colorful Caribbean Carnival. Orange Walk Town’s Mestizo-themed Orange Walk Carnival is held on September 21, Belize’s Independence Day. San Pedro celebrates its carnival in February.

Garífuna Settlement Day: (Nov. 18) Dangriga turns into a massive street party on the eve of Garífuna Settlement Day. Don’t miss the drumming and punta dancing under the Wadani Shed.

Mr. Peters’ Brokdong Bram: (Dec.) A traditional brokdong bram celebration takes place in the village of Gales Point at Christmastime. Brokdong is a festive Creole genre blending various instruments, including drums, maracas, banjo, and even the jawbone of an ass (a donkey)!
