What is Crop Over? And how do I prepare?
“Crop Over it sweet fuh days!”
The Crop Over Festival is a 3-month long festival of Barbadian music, arts, food, culture and so much more. Barbados ends the festivities with a grand carnival parade know as Kadooment Day. Kadooment is known as the biggest and sweetest carnival to end the Caribbean’s carnival season in August each year. The event starts early morning at the National Stadium and beautiful masquerade bands traverse the local city streets ending on Spring Garden highway late in the afternoon.
The Crop Over celebration recalls the colonial past when sugar cane was king, and creativity abounds with indigenous art, craft, calypso, flower festivals, folk concerts and revelry at Foreday Morning. But it is Grand Kadooment – the climax of the festival – which generates the most heat, energy, and color! The event is great fun for everyone, even if you’re watching the masqueraders from the sidelines and not “jumping” in a costumed band. Grand Kadooment Day celebrates the end of Crop Over, where Masquerade Bands make their way to Spring Garden highway with revelers dressed in sequin costumes decorated with colorful feathers, jewels, and bright accents; dancing behind music trucks and moving bars. The finale of Crop Over’s events makes this the island’s most exciting day of the year.
Download a a calypso and soca playlist and start getting used to the music in general. It is best to familiarize yourself with the music as you will realize that everyone is a Soca enthusiast attending. Also, look up carnival videos (Crop Over 2019) of people on the road jumping. This can assist you tremendously in getting a clearer picture of the culture you are about to embrace. It won’t hurt to learn how to wuk up, roll de bumper, six-thirty, and chip which are the two most popular styles of dancing at Crop Over. Because we will be participating in a few fetes, in Foreday Morning and Grand Kadooment Parade, start walking a couple of miles a day to build up your endurance (We will be walking/jumping several miles (5-6) in the heat during Crop Over!!!
