Crop Over Festival

Words by Paul Dodson

The friendly Caribbean isle of Barbados puts on its party shoes in June and doesn't take 'em off again until the first Monday in August when Crop Over culminates in the Grand Kadooment.

Crop Over marks the end of the local sugar cane harvest with origins that can be traced as far back as 1688. Today, it's a rum-fuelled, calypso-backed celebration of culture with competitions, exhibitions, concerts, street markets, parades and the legendary dusk-to-dawn fetes or bashments.

The Grand Kadooment marks the end of Crop Over celebrations as costume bands take to the streets, pulsating Bajan rhythms fill the air and fireworks ignite the sky. A little tip: try the flying fish sandwich, they're amazing.
