Events And Festivals

There's always something happening year-round in Barbados so add to your Caribbean experience by planning your getaway around your favourite festivals and events.

Barbados holidays can include much more than just beautiful beaches and the great outdoors. This vibrant island plays host to an astonishing array of annual events including world-class sports, music festivals, theatre performances and our much-loved Barbados carnival during the Crop Over harvest festival celebrations - called Grand Kadooment, it's considered one of the best festivals in the world.

Check what's on in Barbados before you travel, and make online bookings for popular events such as international cricket test matches at the Kensington Oval, our jam-packed Reggae on the Hill event, and the annual season of outdoor theatre and musical performances hosted in the sublime gardens of Holders Great House.
