Carriacou Carnival encompasses wild and wonderfully expressive street dances, soca frenzy, parade of the bands and a calypso competition that combines rhythm with humorous and stinging social commentary. Celebrated at the beginning of March 2016, Carriacou’s Carnival offered the unique highlight and feature of the Shakespeare Mas to onlookers.
There is no place else in the world where you can witness the recitation of lines from some of William Shakespeare’s plays. Shakespeare Mas is a unique highlight and feature of Carriacou’s Carnival that you have to witness in person. Men dressed in bright colours engage in a battle of words hoping not to fumble on his lines otherwise surrendering to a stroke of his opponent’s stick.
