The premier cultural event, ‘Spicemas’ is Grenadian expression in all its glory, climaxing during the second Monday and Tuesday in August. Brimming with pageantry and expression linked to our African, French, British and Caribbean heritage, Carnival is colorful, humorous and full of surprises. Calypsonians, steel pan orchestras, beauty contestants, ‘fancy mas’ bands and others perform and parade to compete for Carnival honors. Grenadians gather to watch, participate and enjoy.
