Rally in the Caribbean for the 54th Carriacou Regatta Festival

We think it's a fact that if you spot an island, you will most likely spot a boat. And that’s exactly how it is here in Grenada, especially during the peak of summer. As July begins to set into full swing, just a short jump away on our sister island Carriacou, they begin to gear up the festivities for the 54th Annual Carriacou Regatta Festival.

A regatta is a series of boat races that typically takes place in the summertime here in the Caribbean Islands. This particular race draws a pretty big crowd for an island that is only inhabited by 6000 people. Many boaters from neighboring islands like Antigua and Tobago join the competition to see if they have what it takes to win the title of best captain at the Carriacou Regatta. Muster all the spirit you have and join in on the four-day-long event of cheering, dancing, and celebrating at the very beginning of August!

Not into boating? Not a problem! There is more to the regatta than boat racing. From donkey racing to maypole dancing to greasy pole walking and other exciting events, the regatta weekend is full of festivities and cultural celebrations for all ages to enjoy. Ask our concierge about all of the upcoming activities and we’ll be happy to help you find your favorite ones!
