Kaffir Festival (Fèt kaf’) in Reunion

 

 

It is also called the celebration of December 20, 1848, in memory of the abolition of slavery. The island was in fact heavily populated by the importation of slaves on coffee and sugar cane plantations. The holiday – almost a national holiday! – is not only reserved for “kaffirs” (black people, descendants of former slaves). The events, mainly musical, allow you to discover the best musicians on the island during often free concerts. This is the opportunity to attend kabars with the best musicians on the island. A great opportunity to pay tribute to the memory of slaves, and to celebrate freedom. December 20 has been a public holiday since 1981.
