Carriacou Carnival encompasses wild and wonderfully expressive street dances, soca frenzy, parade of the bands and a calypso competition that combines rhythm with humorous and stinging social commentary.

Climaxing on the third Monday and Tuesday of February in 2015, the event offers Shakespeare Mas. 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.  Where else can you hear the recitation of Shakespeare in such a setting?
