Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands – December 6, 2022] The Tourism Attraction Board (TAB) and Pedro St. James (PSJ) are again hosting Christmas at the Castle this Sunday, 11th December. The free event, touted as a celebration under the stars, is a kickoff to the 2022 holiday season where the people can gather safely outdoors on the National Historic Site’s Great Lawn. 

Christmas at the Castle will feature a Christmas concert, Christmas market, food court, and a visit from Father Christmas himself. “We held our second Christmas at the Castle in 2020 and it was an opportunity for the Tourism Attraction Board to ‘give back’ to the community while offering yet another chance for vendors and artisans to sell their products, as well as the opportunity to hear from many of Cayman’s talented performers”, explained TAB’s Director, Patrick Thompson.

Christmas carols and other holiday favourites will be performed by various musicians, including Vashti, Michelle T, Jessie Watler, Dexta Bodden, Savannah United Church, Shari Espuet, and Radiance Dance Studio, among others. 

Another important event component is the fundraising raffle, aimed at developing a wheelchair-accessible walkway at the attraction. It has long been our goal to make Pedro more wheelchair friendly. Our goal for 2023 is to create a walkway from the main courtyard area to the Great House, making us more accessible to the physically challenged. Tickets are only CI$5.00 and can be purchased at the event.

We are thankful to sponsors and the many businesses who have committed prizes in support of our raffle, as this kindness ensures the public will not only be able to enjoy a fun holiday show but also have the opportunity to win one of 45 prizes valued at more than CI$ 2,600.00.

Christmas at the Castle is bigger than all of us, this incredible event is about Caymankind and embracing the meaning of Christmas, and the opportunity to engage with each smiling face is simply priceless.
