We have lots of annual visitors who visit Barbados religiously to take part in the Crop Over festivities.  While the traditional Crop Over Festival will not be functioning in its former full glory, that doesn’t mean that it’s not a perfect time to rest and rejuvenate and take advantage of the season’s closing weekend July 30th to August 3rd. Before we share with you some of the top vacation villas to spend the long weekend at, here’s a brief overview with a 2021 update of Barbados’ Harvest festival, Crop Over.

Crop Over Festival Overview

The Crop Over Season is a 3-month festival celebrated every summer in Barbados and this national festival is rooted in sugar. This festival began over 3 centuries ago to signal the end of the yearly sugar cane harvest. It has since evolved into Barbados’ biggest national festival, similar to Carnival in Trinidad and Brasil with parties, dancing, and beautiful costumes. The climax of the festival is Kadooment Day celebrated with a national holiday when costume bands fill the streets with pulsating Barbadian rhythms and several international celebrities joining in the fun.

Even though the pandemic has shifted the festivities, the spirit of the season lives on. Recently, Barbados’ Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley announced that even though the Kadooment Day festivities will not be occurring this year, promoters are allowed to host events limited to 150 persons throughout the Crop Over season; just in time for visitors to enjoy a plethora of Barbados music, food, and events. Take this time to also enjoy a Barbados golf holiday, a beachfront villa in Holetown, or check out our long-term rentals page for great rates.
