Festival Place

Tourist Trap

The best thing about Festival Place is it’s air-conditioned. Mighty welcome on a hot Nassau day.

It’s cute, too, with storefronts that resemble colorful Bahamian cottages. And it’s fun, because there’s a Junkanoo band playing on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

There’s a hitch: It’s a cruise ship passenger trap. But have a look. It sells tacky souvenirs, but other nice stuff such as books, Junkanoo masks, carvings, and local jellies and jams. Cruise ship passengers appreciate its Wi-Fi, Internet kiosks, and other services.
