In Barbados, their festivals are one of the ways in which they celebrate their unique culture. Visiting during any of the following will add fun to your holiday and allow you to share in the Barbadian way.

So looking to 2013, the great festival calendar starts with the Jazz festival in January.
Then from 10th February, a week of the Holetown festival, showcasing Barbados traditions – it is a celebration of the arrival into Holetown of the first settlers in February 1627. It’s a fun place to wander around, watch some performances, eat great local food, shop for local crafts etc.

A less well-known festival but one I’m certainly looking forward to is the Celtic Festival Barbados, held in 2013 between May 23rd and May 29th. Professional musicians from Ireland, Scotland and Wales playing at various venues across the island. A very exciting festival sharing some of the Celtic links with Barbados. Music, food and beautiful sunshine!

Then of course, the renowned Cropover festival, often mentioned on this blog, in July and into August. As it sounds, this is the equivalent of a Harvest festival and a wonderful traditional celebration on the island. Closer to the time, I will post a calendar of the highlights.

And dates yet to be announced, but another up and coming festival that gets rave reviews! The Barbados food, wine and rum festival in november. I’ll let you know!

The 36th Holetown Festival in Barbados has been memorable so far this week with festivities and a fun-packed weekend to come. The Holetown festival first took place in 1977 to celebrate the Anniversary of the first settlement of Barbados.
