    Banks Hockey Festival

    One of the largest hockey events in the hemisphere and certainly one of the most cosmopolitan and exciting events in the entire world of hockey. Teams from Europe and the UK, North America and the Caribbean take part in this weeklong explosion of Caribbean warmth, music and culture combined with excellent hockey played at historic pitches.

    The Banks International Hockey Festival attracts teams from across the globe - Barbados, the Caribbean, Europe, Britain, South America, the United States and Abu Dhabi.

    The festival, described as the biggest single annual field hockey tournament in the hemisphere, is divided into men's, women's, veterans and mixed-team divisions.

    The hockey is competitive yet friendly, and visiting teams take the opportunity to enjoy the fine weather and warm Barbadian hospitality.

    The astroturf at the Sir Garfield Sobers Sports Complex provides a world-class surface on which parts of the tournament will be played.

    Grand Kadooment Day

    The grande finale of the Crop Over Festival is the Grand Kadooment! This carnival parade features large bands with members dressed in elaborate costumes to depict various themes. Designers compete for the coveted Designer of the Year prize while the revelers seem more intent on having a good time!

    The revelers make their way from the National Stadium to Spring Garden accompanied by the pulsating rythym of calypso music. When they reach Spring Garden, the party continues with more fantastic music, lots of food and drink and, for some, a quick swim at the nearby beach. A grand end to a grand festival.

    Crop Over - more than a carnival!
