This summer Barbados invites travelers to live like a local and experience the island's lively Crop Over Festival, celebrating a 200 year-old tradition that honors the end of the sugar cane season. The festival celebrates all that is Bajan with dusk till dawn parties, arts and crafts markets and a culinary-driven street fares.

Grand Kadooment Day celebrates the end of Crop Over, where Masquerade Bands make their way to Spring Garden highway with revelers dressed in sequin costumes decorated with colorful feathers, jewels and bright accents; dancing behind music trucks and moving bars. The finale of Crop Over's events makes this the island's most exciting day of the year. As you will hear Bajans say: "Crop Over it sweet fuh days!"
