Saint Kitts And Nevis Features in Caribbean Embassy Night On Capitol Hill

(Washington D.C.) In collaboration with the Senate Black Legislative Staff Caucus and the Congressional Hispanic Staff Association, the Embassy of Saint Kitts and Nevis to the United States joined fellow CARICOM Embassies in bringing the Caribbean’s vibrant cultural mosaic through its music, dance, and food to the halls of Capitol Hill at an event dubbed “Caribbean Embassy Night”

The cultural diplomatic event provided a unique opportunity for Embassy and Congressional staff to interact and foster greater relations while offering a glimpse into the Caribbean region’s unique cultural identities, its time-honoured traditions and joyous spirit.

The Embassy of Saint Kitts and Nevis showcased a dynamic blend of the culture and creative industry of the Federation highlighting elements of folkloric performances, culinary delights, artisan products, and tourism promotional material. The flavoured infusion of Shipwreck rums brought a warm and exciting immersive twist to the SKN experience to its patrons.

June is celebrated as Caribbean-American Heritage Month in the USA during which time the contributions and the diverse cultures of the millions of people of Caribbean heritage are honoured across the United States.

The Embassy of Saint Kitts and Nevis is therefore delighted to play its part in the commemorative activities to not only spotlight the region’s exquisite melting pot of cultural and artistic synergies but to also promote the products and services of our local artisans to potential global consumers. As the Embassy continues to expand its cultural and public diplomacy engagement in the United States, it welcomes the partnership of our local artisans in the Federation in this endeavour to create greater economic linkages to global markets.
