Spice Mas Carnival

Category: Festival
Celebrated In: Grenada

Unlike other carnivals which are traditionally a celebration of Lent, the Grenada Carnival is a celebration of independence. Grenada gained its independence in 1974 and this has always been celebrated year after year.

A government overthrow in 1979 saw the Grenada Carnival cancelled for that year, yet things were back on track after just one missed celebration when the People's Revolutionary Government had it re-instated. The Grenada Carnival was moved to August, avoiding both the Easter period and Similar Carnivals in other Caribbean locations.

Grenada Carnival, or Spice Mas as it is also known, combines all of the popular carnival themes including music, dance and cuisine. It runs between July and mid August each year and ends with the final street jump-up.
