Coco Fest began in 2016 and was created as a way to celebrate the Cayman coconut and to preserve its ties to Caymanian culture and heritage. The festival, which also highlights local cottage industry business is about remembering a time when the coconut industry was vital in Cayman. 

Coco Fest also supports the Shop Local culture by creating a space for small businesses to showcase and sell their artwork, traditional foods and products made from coconut oil or some part of the coconut plant. 

A representative from Island Organics proudly showcases her products.

“We have had upwards of 30 vendors and demonstrators in past years, and we’ve seen a keen interest by vendors, new and old, signing on. I was informed by the PSJ team that all our spots were sold out in about a week,” added Mr. Thompson.
