Good Night, Calabash?


Kwame Dawes, programming director of the festival since its inception, with a few literature faithfuls under a small tent through to its swan song before an audience of thousands, said "there is definitely no festival. No two ways about it."
Calabash - which was free and open to the public - has normally been staged on the final weekend in May, which last year turned out to be four days after the Tivoli incursion and during the limited State of Emergency imposed in Kingston, St Andrew and St Catherine.
