Plans are already underway for the best ever Conch Festival here in the Turks & Caicos Islands… and if you’ll be here on the island of Providenciales during the entire month of November, you can look forward to having a Conch Festival event to attend in the Blue Hills area on each Saturday during the month.
We’ll be updating this blog post soon when details are finalized, however, different related events including ‘largest live conch’, ‘conch knocking contest’ and a mystery event are all in the works. Of course, the culmination will occur on the main day of the event, Saturday November 24th, 2012 where the festivities will start promptly at noon.
