This little Caribbean island Barbados offers a variety of Festivals throughout the year, inclusive of Carnivals, Street fairs, Culinary and Sports festivals, as well as many Cultural extravaganzas, all of which showcase the diversity of our culture and talents.
The National Cultural Foundation (NCF) of Barbados produces the national festivals every year including the Crop Over Festival which is the premier cultural event in Barbados and the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA) which is held annually to commemorate Independence.
Some Barbados festivals are more community oriented while sports festivals which attract international teams, combine music and culture at historic venues, making for memorable events.
The music festivals on the island are extremely popular like the Barbados Jazz Festival and the Barbados Reggae Festival just to name a few. These events mix internationally acclaimed artistes with local and regional talent.
There are also smaller festivals which are created by local Promoters, local organisations and communities.
