About Carnival

This is a contender for the carnival with the longest duration, as the festivities carry on for three months. Crop Over is a Historic Festival with its roots going as far back as the early 1600s on the Sugar Plantations scattered across this beautiful island. It culminates in a carnival parade called Kadooment Day.

Initially a celebration by the slaves commemorating the end of the sugar cane harvest, this festival has survived the centuries, to its current form as locals, visitors and international celebrities alike take part in the many activities.

Starting at the end of June, the festival runs through to the first Monday in August, where there are art, craft and cultural displays throughout the season. Over the last weekend, the festival culminates with many street parties, costume parades and soca competitions which define the Barbadian people.
