The Aruban arts scene is a prominent element of Aruban culture. More and more travellers are coming to appreciate the presence of art in Aruba. Apart from our cultural celebrations, such as Carnival, local art and crafts are being brought to the forefront, too. Events such as “Korteweg” and the Aruba Art Fair are well attended and purveyors of Caribbean art are eager to share a piece of our culture with the rest of the world!

Discover the culture of Aruba! Learn about the fascinating history and traditions – as well as cuisine, music and art – behind this celebrated Caribbean island.

Traditional Aruban music, a mix of waltz, danza, mazurka and tumba, is typically performed during festivals and holidays, including Dia di Betico, Flag & Anthem Day, Dera Gai and the weekly Bon Bini Festival.

The local community and island visitors mark their calendars for three of the hottest annual Aruba music festivals: the Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival, the Aruba Soul Beach Music Festival and the Aruba Summer Music Festival. All three festivals feature celebrated international and local artists.
