Another top Caribbean carnival is making its long-awaited return.
Grenada’s Spicemas is back this summer, with the festivities launching on Aug. 8 and 9.
“We are thrilled by the return of Spicemas this summer. It is undoubtedly a highlight of the year for locals and visitors alike, showcasing the best entertainment and culture that Grenada has to offer. We look forward to welcoming revelers who return year after year and first timers for this unique and all-immersive event,” said Petra Roach, CEO of the Grenada Tourism Authority.
The event includes everything from Fantastic Thursday, which sees calypsonians, power soca and groovy soca artists compete for the title of Calypso, Soca and Groovy Monarch to a steel pan competition.
The event concludes in the early hours of Carnival Monday with the classic J’ouvert parade.
“We are excited to stage our first Spicemas in three years. From all indications this will be our biggest festival ever,” said Arley Gill, chairman of the Spicemas Corporation, which operates the event. “We will celebrate life through our portrayals and music. And of course, Spicemas remains the home for Jab-Jabs from all over the world.”
