FESTIVALS AND EVENTS
The biggest festival in Barbados is Crop Over. It is a carnival, cultural and music festival held at the end of July and beginning of August. It celebrates the end of the harvesting of sugar cane which used to be the island’s main produce. Crop Over is very popular with locals and members of the diaspora living in the UK, USA and Canada. Famous Bajans like Rihanna often come home to “jump” in a band.
FOOD AND RUM FESTIVAL
In November there is a food and rum festival.
A range of music festivals are planned throughout the year. Whether it is Jazz, reggae, soca or gospel there are music festivals to cater to all tastes.
