Since 1976, “Vincy Mas” Carnivals have been held in June or July. Previously, they came just before Lent, but nowadays, the connection with Lent is gone in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
Calypso music competitions, folk bands, dances, and a costumed parade and other events in the capital city of Kingston are the main attractions.
