The Crop Over festival is the most important celebration in Barbados. A massive carnival that congregates thousands of people from all over the world during more than a month.
This year’s edition will take place from June the 30th to August the 6th. Don’t miss the extravaganza and book your Barbados holiday in advance.
The festival has its origins in the 1780s, a time when Barbados was the world’s largest sugar producer, to commemorate the end of the harvest. Sugarcane was introduced in Barbados in 1640, and the group that played a decisive role in the success of this industry were the Sephardi Jews, previously expelled from Spain.
