Grenada Carnival renowned for its colour, creativity and unique cultural character, Grenada’s Carnival is one of the island’s biggest annual festivals. Although each parish features its own brand of traditional costume or mas’, and many have activities at the Parish level, for many the main Carnival action is to be found on the streets of the capital city of St. George’s. The festivities begin in July with the opening of various Calypso Tents where local calypso bards sing to entertain locals and visitors alike and to vie for a chance to compete on the big stage of the National Calypso Monarch Competition. School Calypso competitions culminate in the Junior Calypso Monarch and Junior Soca Monarch shows, where the young cultural talent of Grenada is brought to the forefront. The Carnival celebration gains momentum in early August with cultural presentations and calypso shows almost every night of the week and the night air is filled with the sound of steel bands rehearsing their unique musical arrangements for the upcoming Panorama competition. Finally the countdown to Carnival begins one week before, with the opening of the Rainbow City Festival in Grenville, St. Andrew. Also called La Baye, this craft and cultural fair serves up a weekend of fun and frolic and endless parties through the streets of the Grenville, Grenada’s second largest town.
