Top 3 Annual Cultural Events Of Grenada You Don’t Want To Miss
You know if you want to visit Grenada but you need a “great” reason to come down to visit. These three Annual Cultural events of Grenada are the perfect excuse to come and visit our beautiful Island.
- Grenada Carnival – July 22nd to August 9th
The Grenada Carnival is the biggest annual cultural event of the season. As with anything in Grenada, it’s done with a true local sense of style. The music, the decorations and the people embody this event completely. It’s also commonly referred to by inhabitants as “Spicemas”. There are various musical events throughout the carnival that embody the Grenada spirit.

- Carriacou Regatta – July 25th to August 2nd
If you have a love for the sea and the boats that come with them – then this is the perfect Festival for you. Even though it’s technically a Yacht race there are lots of festivities to be enjoyed by those not being part of the race. From Karaoke nights to special dinners, everything is covered in these seven action-packed days.
- Fish Fridays (Weekly but still worth the visit!)
Fish Friday is a traditional supper that is offered up in the small town of Gouyave. It’s not by any restaurant or specific place. You have a row upon row of vendors offering all sorts of fish delights. It’s an absolute dream for sea food lovers. It’s also a great way to get to know some of the local food and have a chance to speak to locals.
We also say to our guest that there is as much or as little as you want to do. Many of you may just want to chill out by the pool or on the beach and rest, reading a good book (we have an extensive library) or simply flip through a wide range of the latest glossy magazines from Europe and the USA.
Whatever your mood or inclination we feel we can gently cater to your every need.
