Carriacou Carnival

February 27 2017

Phone: 1 (473) 443 7948

Carriacou Carnival encompasses wild and wonderfully expressive street dances, soca, fancy mas bands, calypso, the Jab Jab and even the authentic 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 their lines otherwise surrendering to a stroke of his opponent’s stick.
