Cropover Celebrations


Cropover Celebrations are in full swing. Now is the time to join in! To help you get the most out of your Cropover experience, the team at Royal Westmoreland has created a little Cropover Pocket Guide, which can be viewed here.

 

About the festival

The Cropover festival is our island’s annual summer celebration which honours the end of the local sugar cane harvest. It’s a tradition that goes back to the 18th century.

The festival’s culmination is Grand Kadooment, which is Barbados’ Carnival Day and rated as one of the best carnivals in the Caribbean.

 

The word Kadooment is a Bajan term meaning: a big occasion filled with fun and merriment.
