You are invited to be part of Cuba Week 2017!

Since 2004 The Brunswick Trinidad Sister City Association has brought the flavors and sounds of our Caribbean neighbor to the streets of Brunswick, Maine.

Traditionally local restaurants have also shown their solidarity with Trinidad, Cuba to feature a Cuban dish or beverage in their establishment. On Tuesday, March 28 enjoy a full course Cuban dinner at The Brunswick Inn. Wild Oats brings their enthusiasm from a recent island visit for the week of March 26th. Eat in or take out. Gelato Fiasco will feature mojito sorbet to bring you thoughts of warm island breezes. Also participating are Henry and Marty’s, Big Top Deli and Scarlet Begonias.


This year Cuba Week will take place on March 26th -April 2. There will be a display of Cuban handicrafts and arts in the Curtis Library during the month of March, a concert featuring the popular group, Primo Cubano, a lively panel discussion with Cuba travelers, and a film shown at Bowdoin College- Return to Cuba-In the Footsteps of Walker Evans.

Five world-renowned photographers travel to Cuba just weeks before the historic U.S.-Cuba reconciliation in 2014. Retracing the footsteps of legendary photographer Walker Evans, they reinvent his iconic 1930s images at a new historical tipping point. Director Ross McDermott intertwines Evans’s pre-Castro Cuba with the busy streets of Havana and the countryside of Viñales. From the quick yet studied street-style photography of Sam Abell to the uncommon camera-obscura practices of Abelardo Morell, these master photographers reinterpret Cuba for the 21st century. This colorful documentary brings together five unique visions of Cuba’s complex and transforming cultural landscape.-
