Kadooment Day 2017

kadooment-day

In Barbados, Kadooment is held on “Kadooment Day” and is the conclusion of the Crop Over Festival Season. The “Grand Kadooment” is the official finale celebration of the season, usually held on the first Monday of August. This year, the event is set to take place on Monday 7th August.

This parade of masquerade bands, revel through the streets before judges in full Carnival fashion to be judged at strategic points. The street party ends at the beach-front Spring Garden Highway.

Grand Kadooment is Barbados’ Carnival Day, but it is locally referred to as just Kadooment Day.

Masquerading was an old African tradition, where they paraded in masks and costumes through villages to bring good luck and to remove evil spirits. Most European colonies within the Caribbean who were part of the slave trade have Carnival or Carnival-like celebrations that take place throughout the year.

Today, in large countries like the US, Canada and England, where there are Caribbean communities, you will also find Carnival celebrations.

This is a grand event and it is an offence subject to punishment in a court of law for persons not registered in a costume band to join the parade.
