Carnival is the Top Culture and Entertainment Event in Grenada. 

In  the 1980's it was shifted to August from the traditional Febraury/March date to take it away from similar Carnivals in Trinidad and Brazil.

In 2014, a great effort was made to take the costumes back to the more traditional designs
