This festival takes place around Easter on the biggest Grenadine island called Bequia. The island is usually sunny and hot year round but even more so at Easter. The festival consists of a five-day boat race that attracts many international professional and amateur sailors who compete on the Caribbean Sea surrounding the islands. There is a huge festive atmosphere and it’s quite a spectacle to watch on the many white sandy beaches. The final day sees huge celebrations with parties and events going throughout the night. Many locals also travel from the mainland to enjoy this festival and it is usually a fun filled celebration for friends and families to enjoy.
Carnival takes place on almost all the islands in the Caribbean. The festival is especially special to St. Vincent as it’s filled with parades and pageants, dancing and music with vivid, lively street parties. It is held over two weeks at the end of June, and the beginning of July annually, and is St Vincent’s most well-known festival. There are a variety of musical performances that range from small jam sessions to large-scale concerts. The towns are decorated for this festival that also includes plenty of food and revelry. Many of the Grenadine islands also celebrate carnival but the biggest is held in the capital town Kingstown on mainland St. Vincent. (Price would only include CDC events only; other show cost would be covered by visitor)
This is a truly unique festival, indigenous to only St. Vincent and the Grenadines. As the name suggest the festival is held over the last nine mornings, leading up to Christmas Day. Christmas is a huge celebrating time on the island and its traditions are held to from its Christian history. You will be reminded exactly of where you are as you are woken to the uplifting sounds of traditional steel pan music played at pre-dawn street concerts, followed by performances of singing, dancing and theatre. They are held in towns and villages around the islands. If you love Christmas and don’t mind waking at pre-dawn for 9 days, you would be sure to enjoy this unique Christmas festival which can be compared to no other.
