J'ouvert

Many revellers begin their Carnival marathon at the Dimarche Gras Show and continue straight into the J’Ouvert celebrations, where in the early hours of Monday morning,

Fancy Mas

Also known as Pretty Mas’, which is a parade of male and female masqueraders of all ages dressed in beautifully designed costumes by local and foreign designers and they’re accompanied by Traditional Mas players such as Short Knee, Wild Indians, Viecorps (as we say ‘VEHCO’) and much more.

Monday Night Mas

A parade of lights, held on Carnival Monday Night where spectators gather on the streets of St. George’s waiting to be entertained by thousands of masqueraders enjoying themselves whilst chipping down the streets to some of the local Soca music, in their neon and brightly colored garments and lighting instruments

Children’s Carnival Frolic

Children’s Carnival Frolic is a Festival designed for the younger generation of Grenada, ranging from the ages 3 to 16. It embeds all the elements of Mas and pageantry, designed specifically to facilitate the kids.

Soca Monarch

Soca Monarch is the annual soca music competition, the finals of which are held on Carnival Friday. Contestants in the event vie for two separate crowns or titles, the Soca Monarch (aka the Power Soca Monarch) for uptempo songs (135 bpm and above), and Groovy Soca Monarch for slower-paced songs (134 bpm and below). The Soca Monarch competition has become one of the most anticipated events for Grenada’s Carnival over the years.

Panorama

Held on the Saturday before Carnival, the Panorama Competition is another significant feature of Grenada’s Carnival. Panorama is an annual music competition for conventional steel bands, where up to 100 musicians rhythmically beat their pan sticks against the steelpans to create infectious music that seems to fuel the desire to dance.

Dimanche Gras

Dimanche Gras is French for Great Sunday and is the title of the main carnival event called Dimanche Gras Night. On Dimanche Gras which is carnival Sunday night, the calypso competition and the King and Queen of the Bands are held. It is a spectacle to begin the carnival on Monday morning (J’ouvert).
