The 9th CaFA Fair Barbados was held from March 6-10, 2019 at the Courtney Blackman Grande Salle Gallery & Annex, Tom Adams Financial Center, Spry Street, Bridgetown, Barbados, in tandem with “The World of Winston Jordan: A Tribute”. This exhibition dedicated to legendary Barbadian creative, the late Winston Jordan was held directly across the street from CaFA Fair at the refurbished Exchange Interactive Center, March 6 – April 3, 2019. Another feature of CaFA Fair Barbados 2019 was a presentation of artwork by Barbadian students at Norman Centre Mall in Bridgetown. Hundreds of enthusiastic visitors flowed through the 3 venues and attended our special events. Many followed our presentations on social media. We want to thank the artists, presenters, participants, staff and volunteers who made this entire event possible. A special thank you to our sponsors, supporters, patrons, and everyone who has attended CaFA Fair Barbados over the years. We look forward to our 10th Anniversary in 2020.
