The finals of the Best Village competition kick off tomorrow at the Five Rivers Secondary School from 9 a.m. and runs through to August 24. Trinidad and Tobago’s rich multi-cultural diversity continues to infuse a sense of pride as it explodes on the Prime Minister’s Best Village Trophy Competition stage.

For over 56 years, this competition has been a story of community vision, extraordinary talent, exquisite indigenous cuisine, and a preserver of T&T’s culture and folk tradition. For 2019, there have been some changes to the format of the programme. The preliminary round was replaced to allow for more tutoring and preparation time.
