 Inside Guide to Spicemas 2019 by 473 Grenada

SpiceMas is just around the corner and you do not want to miss any of the parties and events that will be taking place during this festive time in Grenada.

There are tons of carnival events taking place this year for SpiceMas 2018 and we have it all here for you to choose from.

Our team at 473 Grenada Boutique Resort wants you to enjoy the best parties and experience Grenada’s Carnival in the best way possible.

We know that some of our guests and visitors who come to Grenada during the Carnival period love to party in the day and others love to party all night long. Hence, we created our top carnival party picks for those who want to party all day or party all night or both!

Let’s dive into Grenada’s Carnival Experience and get ready for Spicemas 2018

If you have ever read articles or blogs about the Caribbean, we are sure you have heard about the carnival. Each island has its own version of carnival and here in Grenada our carnival is known as Spicemas – we are the Isle of Spice after all! People from all over the world flock to Grenada to experience the famous Jab Jab, the non-stop parties and the amazing parades of Pretty Mas on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon.

Foreigners who visit Grenada during August, the month of the carnival will have a fantastic time with music, parties, smiles, and people dancing all around. But unlike many other carnivals around the world, Grenada’s Carnival stands out on its own. It is an unforgettable experience to enjoy with friends and with the thousands of local Grenadians who come out to play J’ouvert – an epic street party with colored powdered and paint fun!

On the second Monday and Tuesday of August, the Spice Island transforms itself to host thousands of visitors who come to enjoy the drinks, paints, costumes, and music. But if you really want to get the most of it, we strongly suggest you come to Grenada at least one week in advance when the Carnival feeling is in the air and all the main events are taking place.

From Pree Day, a fantastic soca concert held in the national stadium and hosted by one of the most famous local artists to private parties and Soca Monarch, it all goes down a week before the second Monday and Tuesday of August.

To make sure you get the most out of Grenada’s Carnival, we created a list of top events by our chosen by our team at 473 Grenada Boutique Resort. This list is perfectly crafted for those who want to party all day long and sleep the whole night, or party all night and sleep whole day! Either way, you will make the most of your time in Grenada during Spicemas 2018.

The parties, or as we like to call it here in Grenada ‘Fetes’ start on Monday 6th of August with the celebration of the Emancipation Day where there is a beach lime (local lingo for a party). Local artists come to Grand Anse beach for a fantastic performance, that really culminates the essence of island vibes. You can enjoy a relaxing mid-afternoon around Grand Anse and then walk towards the other side of the beach to enjoy some of the performances. But if you rather start your parties mid-afternoon, you can enjoy the Ciroc Party, all-inclusive event, that is taking place at the National Stadium on August 6th from 5:00 PM.

On Tuesday 7th you can relax throughout the day, enjoy the resort’s amenities as the party starts in the hours of the evening. For this event is specific you will have to pre-book your tickets as it is a private party. You can do so by contacting our concierge team and we will assist you to sort out any tickets you may have to purchase. This House Party started to take place 9 years ago and has become a MUST for the week before carnival. This year tickets are $125 XCD or $46USD per person for an all-inclusive party.

If you enjoy sea and boat parties or never have been in one before, and would like the experience, you are in for a treat! From the latest music and great drinks to good vibes and people having a good time, Grenada’s boat parties are always the talk of the town. Most of the day events are cruise parties that start in mid-morning around 11:00 AM and go until 3:00 PM where the boat arrives at the other parties.

If you want to jump up during the day parties for Spicemas 2018, we recommend that you hire a taxi to drop you for the event and give them a pickup hour for when you want to be picked up at the other venue as the departure or arrival locations may be different.

Once we get into the weekend, on Sunday you can take some time to rest and recharge yourself. As in the very early hours of Monday morning, you will hear the drums, horns, and rhythm sounds coming from the streets of St. George’s, the capital of Grenada.

Welcome to J’ourvet Morning in Grenada!

Spicemas 2018 with 473 Grenada Boutique Resort

Where paint, powder, and oil (If you wish to play the famous Jab Jab) mixes with music and wonderful smiles. This is one of the MUST do events of Spicemas, however, if you do not want to get paint or oil in your skin you can enjoy it from the sidewalks of the town.

J’ouvert starts at 6:00 AM, when the bands are allowed to move towards the town of St. George’s, but you can find your way to Kirani James’ Boulevard a bit earlier so you can start to join the crowd.

nigel layne Once you have finished playing J’ouvert, you can take a water taxi to Grand Anse Beach where you can and will enjoy the refreshing feeling of Grand Anse’s blue waters. Almost everyone heads to the beach to remove any paint they may still have on their skin and enjoy the rest of the morning.

If you have signed up for Pretty Mas, the parade of the bands, you may want to head back a bit earlier to get a quick rest, as from 1:00 pm the first round of Pretty Mas starts.

Here is where all the costumes by local and regional designers come to play. From amazing bright colors to huge feathers and costumes that flow with the people while they dance and enjoy themselves, pretty mas is an amazing experience.

If you are not looking to purchase a costume for this, you can enjoy the whole event on the sidewalks of St. George’s, on both Monday and Tuesday afternoon, where you can also purchase refreshments.
