Many competitions and festivals commemorate extraordinary Creole culture, including colourful creole day.

The minister also stated that during the Creole season, visitors can enjoy the Creole life, culture, cuisine, heritage and music. Carole Day is normally celebrated on the given day during the last week of October, usually on the Friday just before the World Creole Music Festival.

She added further that Creole in Dominica is a celebration of rich culture, which was inherited during both the French and British occupations. The main thing attached to Creole day is the French dialect in Dominica.

According to her Creole language in Dominica does not exist in isolation; it comes with the traditions, folklore, song, dance, dress and peculiarities of the people of Dominica.
