2022 National Day Celebration

On Sunday, November 13, 2022, DARDA celebrated Dominica's 44th anniversary of independence with a National Day Gala held at Eastwood Manor in the Bronx, NY.  It was the first year DARDA held its annual dinner/dance since the COVID-19 pandemic.


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.
