Grenada's carnival takes place in the month of August each year, and has been celebrated on the island since the Europeans occupied it.

Carnival comes from the Latin carne levare, which means "farewell to meat". The tradition, it is said comes from the French and Romans who pigged out on meat the day before Lent and then issuing a strict period of fasting. Between the 1st of the year and Lent, they would celebrate by hosting magnificent banquets. Their slave being left out of their owner's fun would organise their own parties during the same time and because they didn't have the elaborate dresses of their owners, they put together costumes with what little they had.
