Carnival in Bequia

Have read that Bequia has Carnival the last week of June before Vincy Mas on St Vincent - anyone have any information? Anything to be aware of - will businesses be closed, etc?

Thanks for your help!

I would write to the Bequia Toursim Association and get your info from them. info@bequiatourism.com is the e-mail from their website.

Or check with the hotel/aptartments where you are staying.. they may have info as well.

It looks like it's not a big thing but sounds like fun.

Bequia's carnival is a bit of a hit and miss event. Most Bequians head over to St Vincent for Vincy Mas in June.

Businesses won't be closed for the Bequia carnival. It most likely will be a one day (or evening) affair and will probably just be a jump up in the harbour and not anything on the scale of Vincy Mas.

The St Vincent carnival is well worth a visit. If you are staying on Bequia take a trip over for the day for the Mardi Gras parade - great fun and and amazing display of costumes. This is the best to go as a tourist.

There is a cool photo gallery of (St Vincent) carnival on www.bequia-information.com

Hope this info helps
