St Vincent and the Grenadines - Hottest Carnival

St Vincent and the Grenadines - Hottest Carnival

St Vincent and the Grenadines (self-proclaimed) “hottest Carnival in the Caribbean” runs for almost two weeks, from Fantastic Friday on 26 June — featuring the semi-finals of the national calypso competition — to Mardi Gras on Tuesday 7 July. Along the way you’ll find all the events you’d expect from a Caribbean Carnival: soca, steel pan, J’Ouvert on Monday 6 July, and fetes galore.

“When we touch the road, we touch the road to party hard”: so said Vincentian soca star Gamal “Skinny Fabulous” Doyle in a Caribbean Beat interview last year. The former Vincy Mas soca monarch knows what he’s talking about. He’ll be a leading contender to reclaim the soca crown from 2014’s winner, Delroy “Fireman” Hooper, at the competition on Saturday 4 July, and whoever comes out on top, their songs are guaranteed to dominate the road on Carnival Monday and Tuesday.
