It’s an exciting year for Grenada! Since February, the entertainment has been nonstop, with numerous events occurring throughout the island. Some were special editions as we continue to commemorate our 50th anniversary of Independence. Others are activities that typically occur on our annual calendar, but this year, considering all that’s already taking place, they help create a sense of perpetual celebration. But who’s complaining? May the festivities continue, and they will this month.

The merriment moves to our sister island for the Petite Martinique Whitsuntide Regatta Festival 2024. This highly anticipated annual event will take place from 17 – 20 May 2024 and is themed “Regatta in We DNA.” The festival will feature a few outlying events, such as a Thanksgiving mass on 5 May and a cruise on the following Sunday.

There’s no doubt many will flock to the little island for the ensuing activities. Those planning to visit can expect three days of exhilarating races with top local, regional, and international sailors competing. The nautical activities will be interspersed with onshore entertainment, ensuring there is something for everyone! It’s going to be a weekend packed with lots to see, do and, well, taste. Are you interested in hopping across to be part of it?
