Crop Over, Bridgetown
Barbados’ premier festival began as an 18th century celebration of the sugar harvesting season’s end. Held between June and August, visitors will find a celebration every bit as colorful and fervent as carnival in Brazil or Trinidad. Crop Over’s five weeks feature lavish costume parades, music and dancing, plus markets, carnival shows, and concerts.
