Cudjoe Head’s Montserrat celebrations coming up next month

This will be held from July 29-30, 2011.  The village of Cudjoe Head was named in the 18th Century after a slave by the name of Cudjoe who ran away from his master. He was caught and lynched at Cudjoe Head corner and his head was placed on a silk cotton tree to remind anyone considering running away what the punishment would be if they were caught. 

The festivities will include performances by steelband, masqueraders, and a string band, as well as an appearance by Miss Goosy.  Other activities include an early morning road race and an exhibition of goods produced in the village. Additionally, the Friday night before the festival known as Cudjoe Head Eve, is a time known for revelry and fun with a street festival that includes live music
