About The Event

The Carriacou Maroon Music Festival offers visitors the chance to witness the traditional Caribbean practice of a 'maroon' - a celebration offering thanks for the last harvest and asking for good fortune during the upcoming planting season. The three-day festival is marked with traditional songs, dance, food and other cultural performances. The beating of drums thumps out the rhythm that pulsates throughout the celebrations and beckons all the surrounding communities to come and join the fun at the festival village.
