When the Seychelles Islands were first settled, it was by a blend of varied ethnicities possessing different customs and ways of life. Throughout its history and down to this very day, Seychelles has continued to be a melting pot of peoples from the four corners of the earth who have each contributed their particular thread to the fabric of this vibrant society, adding to it and being, themselves, subtly transformed in return.
Against this background of multi-culturalism, diversity and the coming together of peoples, it is fitting that Seychelles should once again be the focal point of an annual ‘Carnaval des Carnavals’ – bringing representatives from the world’s best carnivals to participate in 3 days of celebration alongside cultural groups from the community of nations.
The 4th edition of the Seychelles International Carnival of Victoria will be held between 25th and 27th April, when it will once again become a focal point for representatives from the world’s most famous carnivals who will be invited to the islands to take part in this exciting international event.
