Carriacou Carnival



Perhaps more than any other Caribbean Island, Carriacou has maintained its rich African heritage, most notably with the Big Drum dance that is still performed at weddings, boat launchings, funerals, and housewarmings. Dancers dressed in elaborate and colorful costumes celebrate the harvest of the sea by moving to the rhapsodic beat of conga drums and "chac chac" rattles. Straight out of Africa, Big Drum is also performed at the annual August boat regatta, which draws serious sailors from all over the Grenadines for four days of racing and festivities.
