Arts & Culture

Aruba’s culture comes alive in the spirited rhythms, art, and dance that fill our streets, homes, galleries, and hearts.


Whether it’s international hits or authentic Aruba music, our community has a deep appreciation for sound and the way it makes us feel.

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 Festival. All three festivals feature celebrated international and local artists.

The latest addition to the lineup of art and music festivals in Aruba is the Carubbian Festival in San Nicolas, featuring performances by carnival groups in bright-colored and smashing outfits, market stands offering local food and arts and crafts, all forming a part of this weekly festival in Aruba.
