Washing up more than miles of white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, Barbados is home to a vibrantly flamboyant summer street festival known as Crop Over. Celebrated at the start of August yearly, Grand Kadooment Day marks the end of the Crop Over period with masqueraders parading the streets in colourfully adorned

costumes. This cultural festival first originated as a grand celebration of the end of the harvest period of sugar cane. Today, a sea of lively events and soca parties precede Grand Kadooment Day rendering early August a brilliant time to experience Barbados’ rich culture and treasured festivities.
