UWI Fete 2015 – Labelled as one of the most anticipated events of the carnival season, UWI brought no disappointments as avid attendees came out in full to partake, participate and party. […] The feature artiste “Monk Monte”, Machel Montano delivered a full performance with the full band, including Farmer Nappy, Alison Hinds and Skinny Fabulous.
UWI Fete 2014 – Great vibes at this fete, this is the place to hang out with your siblings or your parents and still see all your friends or your usual once a year, carnival only friends. The crowd is not the youngest but it’s a great sampling of Trinis of all ages.
Trinidad Carnival Diary
UWI Fete 2013 – It is without hesitation, I the D’ Party Maco do endorse this yearly event, simply because partygoers always seems to get their monies worth, something all other promoters should note.
UWI Fete 2013 – The theme this year was “Yalla” and I really liked that they tried to be cohesive with the theme from the time you entered the venue. Complimentary scarves were given along with your wristband which many people used to accessorize their outfit. Hookas,henna, belly dancing and even a decorated photo tent were all in keeping with theme.
Trinidad Carnival Diary
UWI Fete 2012 – Wow, I know the menu was available on UWI Fete’s Facebook page for weeks leading up to the event but I was still impressed by the variety of food in person. […] Everything I had tasted great, no complaints. Kudos to the “fancy” square disposable plates that were used.
Trinidad Carnival Diary
UWI Fete 2012 – Dil-e-Nadan would go on to deliver a first class performance that had even fellow musicians commenting that they did a great job. […] KES the Band too did well on the evening […] where American actress, Tatyana Ali were dancing throughout their roughly 45 minute set. Later […] artistes such as the Black Stalin, Ronnie MacIntosh and Lord Nelson took the people back to the good not so old days performing some of their most loved hits of the years accompanied by Roy Cape.
