Carnival 2024, 2025 and 2026 in Grenada

In Grenada, Carnival is one of the most important annual holidays on the calendar. The largest, main event takes place in the city of Saint George, but every locality has its own plate of special events. And every parish has its own special Carnival costume style.

Calypso tents open up in July, where those who hope to compete in the national Calypso contest of Carnival compete. There are also school-based Calypso competitions. In early August, concerts become more common and the Carnival mood intensifies. The last week before Carnival Day is the most intense, beginning with La Baye cultural events in the town of Grenville.

By Sunday, the final countdown has begun, and contests for King and Queen of Carnival status are almost decided. A “devil” parade also occurs on Sunday, but they are gone by Monday morning. On Monday and Tuesday, the climax comes when various groups of costumed paraders repeatedly march through Saint George’s.
