GTC Festival is a throwback to your favourite May fair

On Sunday 20 May, the Boy Scouts Association of T&T will be transformed into festival grounds for GTC Festival.

Hosted by Good Times Cocktails (GTC) and 86ix8 Family, GTC Festival will ring nostalgic for many. The event is gearing up to be a more mature twist on the quintessential May Fair experience, with games like ring toss, beer pong, darts, knock the cans and more.

While patrons are invited to bring their coolers, everyone will be treated to welcome shots, and able to win even more shots by participating in the aforementioned games.

The festival theme also extends to the snacks and food items on offer including ice cream, chow, cotton candy and snow cones.

Music trucks will be on hand to provide entertainment for the day.

On discussing the concept for the event, Ajala Pilgrim, co-founder of 86ix8 Family said they hoped to expose Trinis to something different, but still familiar, such as the school bazaar format most would have experienced. It’s his opinion that day parties have grown in popularity, perhaps due to the desire for something different, as well as the prevalence of international festivals like Coachella on social media in recent years.  

Pilgrim also hopes the event will give party-goers an avenue to be more expressive with their style.

GTC Festival is on from 2 pm to 8 pm on Sunday 20 May and is being held at the Boy Scouts Association grounds in St Ann’s.

Limited advance tickets started at $250 and can be purchased at YUMA Mas Camp, Sinnamon Skin Klinik, Scouts Association and online at Islandetickets.com.
