What our feters say...

Adjwoa, Texas, USA


"I loved the road march (Kadooment Parade). The whole experience of getting my Carnival makeup done, wearing an outfit I would never wear...oh my gosh, I just marched 7 miles in the sun dancing...the whole experience was fun.  I gotta learn how to put on sunscreen though; I forgot (lol)!"

We're confident that Ultimate Crop Over is all you need for a seamless, fun and amazing Barbados Festival experience!  Whether you're a solo traveler or you're coming with your crew, you'll get the convenience of having it all organized for you, meet other Carnivalistas just like you and do it all on the beautiful island of Barbados. 


Here's what you'll get as an Ultimate Crop Over  feter...
