WHAT IS THE CROP OVER FESTIVAL?
The Crop Over summer festival is Barbados’ most popular and colourful festival. Its origins can be traced back to the 1780’s, a time when Barbados was the world’s largest producer of sugar.
At the end of the sugar season, there was always a huge celebration to mark the culmination of another successful sugar cane harvest – the Crop Over celebration.
As the sugar industry in Barbados declined so too did the Crop Over festival and in the 1940s the festival was terminated completely, partially also due to due mostly to WWII.
However, the festival was revived in 1974 and other elements of Barbadian culture were infused to create the extravaganza that exists today: an event that attracts thousands of people from across the globe.
It was formerly called Harvest Home and ever since its inception has featured singing, dancing and accompaniment by bottles filled with water, shak-shak, banjo, triangle, fiddle, guitar, and bones.
Other traditions included climbing a greased pole, feasting and drinking competitions. Beginning in June, Crop Over runs until the first Monday in August when it culminates in the finale, The Grand Kadooment.
