Spicemas in Grenada
Grenada, known as the Spice Isle of the Caribbean, names its annual carnival Spicemas as a nod to the island’s production of the most spices per square mile in the Caribbean region. As Grenada’s marquee event, Spicemas showcases a variety of colorful and immersive week-long activities that reflect the destination’s African, French, British and Caribbean heritage. This year’s Spicemas in Grenada, taking place August 1-15, 2023, will feature new compliments and concepts different from previous years.
