The event was another celebration filled with food, laughter, music, and dancing.  The agenda included a welcome by DARDA newly seated President Caryl Greaves-Bowen followed by a special recognition of outgoing president, Lorna McIntyre Phillips highlighting her years of service   

The evening included traditional dances such as the Bèlè and Quadrille, and guests proudly showed off their cultural attire during the Parade of National Wear. As it has become tradition, DARDA crowned our very own Ms. Wob Dwiyet and again, A Fu Awe Sounds provided the music for the evening.

DARDA acknowledged its patrons' continued generosity, particularly in response to Hurricane Maria, The funds donated to DARDA have been used to provide small grants to community institutions and programs around the island,  

DARDA humbly gives thanks for all of the support it received from the diaspora, which we excitedly share with our comrades at home.

2019 National Day Celebration

On Sunday, November 10, 2019 DARDA celebrated Dominica's 41st anniversary of independence with a National Day Gala held at Eastwood Manor in the Bronx, NY.


Preserving our heritage

One of DARDA's main objectives is the preservation of Dominica's rich cultural heritage here in America.

The National Day Celebration is planned so that parents, children, family and friends can come together in a great cultural experience to enjoy music, traditional dances, stories and our national dress.  This celebration helps to promote a greater understanding of Dominica's rich heritage.  Proceeds benefit various worthy causes in Dominica.
