Union Island Union Islandis located midway between Grenada and St. Vincent and is equidistant from Barbados, Trinidad and Martinique. Union Island has an impressive cultural background and the islanders celebrate a surprising amount of festivals throughout the year. The Roots Connection Culture Club is a newly formed cultural group on the island whose aim is to preserve the island's cultural heritage by practicing and developing their cultural art forms of drumming, dancing, singing, story telling and poetry. The annual Union Island Maroon Festival is one of the most important cultural events on the island. It is held every year in the month of May, three days before or after the full moon. This festival marks the start of the planting season, and contrary to popular belief, it is not a festival held to herald in the rains.

Union Island During the festival, there is much pomp and celebration and the whole island seems to become involved. There is the opening of the big drums ring and the Nation Dance, which consists of six different dances performed to the beat of six different drum rhythms along with traditional folk songs. A four day festival held every year over the Easter weekend. It features music, sporting competitions, pageants, parades and marvellous local food. The Cake Dance is performed when some one in the community is going to be married. The ritual involves a lively dance with flags and cakes. The dancers must always ensure that the groom's cake and flag are always kept above the bride's, this signifies the traditional dominance of the man in the home.
