 This annual musical festival, held every year during the Bahamas Labour Day weekend, is the signature event for Cat Island. It showcases the sensuous, rhythmic vibe of the island's premier Rake and Scrape music, performed by local and national artists. It also features a Gospel concert, Battle of the Rake & Scrape Bands, quadrille dancing, a children's corner with games and a fishermen and farmers' market. During the festival, guests can partake of “Down Home” Cat Island cuisine, purchase locally made crafts such as jewelry and straw items. Part of the proceeds from the festival are used to provide a scholarship to a deserving local high school graduate. The venue is near the Arthur's Town Airport.
