Spicemas Carnival Grenada

Grenada Carnival is a true marathon of parties, parades, and competitions awash in color, music, and dance. The annual soca monarch, calypso, and steel band competitions, as well as the election of the carnival king and queen, kick off the festivities in June and July each year. As the enthusiasm rises, villages all around the island host special carnival events and parties. The Spicemas schedule heats up as August approaches, with the Sunday before Carnival Monday and Tuesday kicking things off in style.

On Sunday in St. Georges, the customary Dimarche Gras ceremony takes place, marking the start of a marathon of celebrations and the crowning of the Calypso King. The typical Devil Mas bands (jab-jab) emerge from the darkness to parade around the streets with their horned helmets, tarred bodies, and little else as the party continues until Monday morning. They grotesquely dance before vanishing as the sun rises above carnival Monday and the J’Ouvert celebrations. J’Ouvert is a spectacular procession of color, song, and dance in which each parish’s traditional and fancy Mas bands perform. Each group chants and dances their way through the highways on their way to St Georges from their local communities. Modern calypso bands, as well as the King and Queen of Carnival, follow them. Thousands of people then take to the streets with glow sticks, neon lights, and reflective apparel to put on the best light show on the planet, and the world’s biggest street party ensues. The Grenada Carnival takes place on Monday and Tuesday in August, so plan ahead with Mt. Parnassus Inn today. We provide low-cost accommodations in Grenada to suit everyone’s needs.
