About Us

This site provides information about the Barbados Crop Over Festival. The present day Crop Over Festival is a uniquely Barbadian festival that emerged out of the tensions in the meeting and merging of the island’s British and West African heritage. In ancient times, when several societies were predominately agrarian, cultures the world-over patterned their daily lives including agricultural practice in extremely complex and scientific ways that related in specific ways to their spiritual world-views.
