There will be a Crop Over Festival in 2022!
This year's festival will see a few changes, most notably affecting two of its most popular events - Foreday Morning and Grand Kadooment.

Grand Kadooment will be held on August 1st. The route starts at Warrens, travels along the ABC Highway to the Emancipation Statue, then returns along the highway and through Waterford to the National Stadium.

Revellers can enjoy Foreday Morning at two locations: (1) from Searles Plantation to the Lowlands Roundabout and back to Searles, (2) from King George V Memorial Park to Bushy Park.

The Pic-O-De Crop Competition will again utilise the one-song format, rather than the traditional two-song format. The final, scheduled for July 29th, will be held at Kensington Oval.

There will be also be a People’s Choice Soca Monarch Competition at the National Botanical Gardens on July 31st.

The festival officially kicks off on July 2nd with the Ceremonial Delivery of the Last Canes featuring a parade from the Rock Hall Freedom Village to Portvale Factory.

There will be no Junior Kadooment this year.
