Grenada’s Spicemas Carnival


Grenada culture is incredibly rich and the many historic sites and festivals on the island offer visitors a glimpse into Grenada traditions. One of the most important events of the year is the Spicemas Grenada Carnival.

Grenada’s Spicemas Carnival is held the second weekend in August. The build-up to the main events includes soca concerts in the national stadium, a beauty pageant to crown the ‘Carnival Queen’, and parties, parties, parties, day and night – both on land and sea. The highlight for many is J’ouvert, when thousands take to the streets covered in colorful paint and black oil, including the famous Jab Jabs. Monday Night Mas is a spectacle of light as revelers parade through the streets with glowing lights. The next day, the glow sticks are swapped out for feathers and sequins, as lavish costumes are paraded through the streets of St. George’s, all to the beat of soca music.
