History of Pelican Village & Craft Centre
Pelican Village was originally opened in 1964 and was named after Pelican Island, a little island which was located just off Barbados and reclaimed from the sea. This is the land on which the Pelican Village was built.    

Pelican Island was an uninhabited island joined to Barbados when the Bridgetown Harbour was built. It was named after the Pelicans nesting in the area, and was home to a Quarantine facility which was used by ships for sick passengers and its crew.

Pelican Village was renovated and renamed Pelican Craft Centre in April 1999. 


The centre is divided into (2) sections; Retail shops and Workshops.
