Most bazars happen weekly depending on the season, simply check with our Reception before venturing out and we can assist you with advice on what’s opened and the best ways to get there!
Bazar Labrinn, on Beau Vallon Beach in north Mahe, is one of the legendary bazar where shoppers come to stock up on their supply of vegetables, fruits, and local delicacies and where visitors to our islands can enjoy a unique opportunity to shop for souvenirs and sample traditional snacks and beverages – all within an authentic Seychellois Creole ambiance.
Bazar Ovan, on a beach in south west Mahe called Anse Gaulette, provides another excellent opportunity for locals and visitors to mingle and participate in a true celebration of the vibrant Seychellois Creole culture to the rhythms of Creole music.
Victoria Bazar is an Authentic and lively ambiance that is reflective of the Seychellois Creole way of life where vendors sell a variety of goods ranging from arts and crafts to exotic culinary delicacies and beverages, to the accompaniment of local musicians in an atmosphere that’s strictly Creole.
The Round Table Regatta
The Round Table Regatta has become an important national event in Mahe Island’s calendar. In 2017, the event spans one weekend, from Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st October, and will take place on the popular Beau Vallon beachfront. The event’s jam-packed schedule includes numerous sports competitions, live performances by local artists as well as many fairground games. The weekend culminates as usual with the hilarious ‘Greasy Pole Contest’, where competitors struggled to reach a cash prize fixed on top of a 6-metre wooden pole smothered in grease. Last, but far from least, is the all-important lottery draw at 6pm on Regatta Sunday.
Local and international companies support the event by manning food and beverage stalls or running promotional stations where visitors benefit from generous give-aways and reduced prices on goods. All in all, the Round Table Regatta weekend brings many Seychellois and tourists together in a high-spirited, cause-driven event.
Come join us in Seychelles for the Seychelles Round Table Regatta 2017.
Festival Kreol is the biggest and most important event of the Seychelles cultural calendar.
It offers the visitor a fascinating week full of the colours, sounds, flavours and fragrances of one corner of the Creole world that treasures its traditions while embracing the opportunities of the present.
With events showcasing our precious Creole culture, this is an event not to be missed. For a week in October, you will be able to enjoy various events being staged across the three main islands of Mahe, Praslin and La Digue.
Festival Kreol will take place from Monday 23 October 2017 to Sunday 29 October 2017. See you there!
Carnival International de Victoria
Seychelles has always been a rich melting pot of peoples from the four corners of the planet. Each year Victoria becomes a stage for representatives of the world’s most prestigious carnivals, in our very own version of Rio’s very famous Carnivale.
The Seychelles International Carnival of Victoria was this year held over a three-day period in April 2016, becoming a focal point for representatives from the world’s most famous carnivals who were invited to the islands to take part in this exciting international event.
Promising to be the focus of international as well as local attention in each future year, the Seychelles International Carnival of Victoria featured a procession of colourful floats representing the various participants’ national carnivals, as well as a raft of other dedicated activities all of which fell under the carnival’s theme.
There was widespread international press coverage of this colourful event which was a real crowd-pleaser, as it brought the lively ambiance of international carnival time to the islands.
There was even a special Carnival held for all the children living in and visiting Seychelles, and this is typically always held over the same period!
Dates for 2017 will be posted as soon as they are available.
Seychelles Ocean Festival
The Seychelles Ocean Festival took place from 2nd to 9th December 2016.
The new Seychelles Ocean Festival (SOF) stands on the shoulders of its predecessor SUBIOS and its achievements over a period of two decades while at the same time attempting to broaden its appeal and involve other emerging sectors of Seychelles’ marine scene such as sailing, cruising and sports-fishing which are all steadily evolving to become mainstream tourist activities and major destination attractions.
The new Festival, which kicked off with a launch at Eden Island on Friday 2nd December followed by a paid gala dinner at Eden Bleu Hotel the next day, also included public events such as a family fun day on Sunday 4th December featuring a number of sporting activities. There was also dedicated film screenings at Deepam Cinema as well as exhibitions and special festival activities hosted at various hotels and dive centres throughout festival week.
Dates for 2017 will be posted as soon as they are available.
