Two of the most important shows are the Calypso King competition and the Miss Culture Queen competition. The Miss Culture Queen competition is a display of intelligence, talent and beauty making it one of the largest attractions for the Culturama Festival. It is a contest that has produced some outstanding performances. Not to be outdone, the Calypso King competition is usually the most anticipated show during the Culturama festival season where calypsonians use their gift of words and music to express in song the social reality of the local, regional and international community.
