Carriacou Carnival encompasses wild and wonderfully expressive street dances, soca frenzy, parade of the bands and a calypso competition that combines rhythm with humorous but stinging social commentary.
This mas involves the recitation of Shakespeare verses, making it a unique highlight and feature of Carriacou’s Carnival that you cannot witness anywhere else in the world. Men dressed in bright colours engage in a battle of words hoping not to fumble on thier lines otherwise surrendering to a stroke of his opponent’s stick. Take a look at the complete schedule below.
