Emancipation is celebrated on July 1 after a period of slavery in Suriname and other Caribbean countries. Now Ketikoti is most of all a celebration full of happiness and good food.
Stroll over the colourful market and enjoy tropical sounds at the park. Many of the products sold in the stalls are traditionally prepared at home. In the meantime, there is plenty to experience.
You can buy all kinds of handmade things while discovering a variation of music genres like kawina, kaseko and soca. The headliner is Ronald Snijders, who brings a nice mix of kaseko with jazz influences.
