Mashramani has proven itself over the years to be a truly Guyanese Festival. It is the one time of the year when all Guyanese come together and celebrate with diverse colours the true spirit of unity. Truly at the end of the year and the beginning of a new one, this festival connotes the togetherness and festivity of the period and reflects the love and hospitality that Guyanese are known for all over the world.
The word "Mashramani" is a derivative from the Arawak language of our indigenous peoples and means celebration after a successful cooperative effort.
