FAQ

What are the parties like? What is a FETE?

FETE is a French word meaning festival, celebration or party. All of the fetes (or parties) are outdoors and can be compared to a live concert. Fetes start about 11pm and end around 4am. Fetes are so much fun and often vary in theme: Breakfast (starts in the wee hours of the morning), Day (starts in the early afternoon and ends in the early evening), All-Inclusive (all food and drinks are included in the price of your ticket).

How do people dress for fetes?

It really depends on which fete you are going to, the theme of the party and the time of day. Pack clothes as if you are dressing to go on a bunch of fun dates. Feel confident and comfortable…and ready to party!**Travel Tip** Invest in FLAT, comfortable shoes AND insoles. There are rarely any seats at a fete. So it is likely you will be standing, jumping, and dancing for hours. BE COMFORTABLE

How did Crop Over start?

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 1940's the festival was terminated completely. 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.

Do I need to bring any other forms of ID with me?

We strongly recommend to our travelers that you walk with some form of personal identification. There are some fetes on our itinerary where they ask for ID before you can enter the fete. You may bring your driver's license or we've had travelers walk with a laminated copy of their passport. Either will work fine to enter each fete.

What is a ‘mas’ costume?

A 'mas' (short for masquerade) costume can be several things. The most common female costume consists of BBF - bikini, beads and feathers. There are also several versions of this basic costume, from elaborate feathered and beaded headpieces to full piece bathing suit costumes (for more ahem, coverage) to costumes that are as tall as several stories! The typical make costume consists of shorts, a torso piece and arm and leg bands. Some men purchase t-shirts to match their costume or go bare-chested.

What can I expect on kadoonment day (day of the parade)?

When you are a masquerader in Carnival you are a member of section within a band. The sections are uniquely colored and named for all the women and men, which may total a few hundred to few thousand people for each section. The band is composed of several sections. Each band has a pre-defined parade route with unlimited food, drinks (alcoholic/non alcoholic), music (several 18 wheel trucks loaded with speakers) and even restrooms following in the rear of the band.
