Vincy Mas 2014 in St Vincent: the hottest carnival in the Caribbean

May 2, 2014

The St Vincent and the Grenadines Carnival, or Vincy Mas as it’s known, is arguably the country’s most important event and one of the Caribbean’s principal cultural celebrations. This year’s event is even more special to Buccament Bay Resort because Jamilla Neverson, one of the Resort’s wonderful Front Office Agents, is competing in the Miss SVG 2014 contest!

Jamilla Neverson – Miss SVG 2014 contestant

 

Jamilla is up against seven other contestants to take the Miss SVG crown and win a university scholarship. Discover more about Jamilla and her fellow Miss SVG contestants on the official website.

Encompassing a  joyous medley of activities ranging from the Miss SVG beauty contest and costume parades to street parties and live performances, Vincy Mas carnival reflects the country’s proud diversity, rich heritage and strong identity as “the Jewels of the Caribbean” (that’s the 32 islands and cays that constitute SVG).

Being based in the unspoilt paradise of St Vincent & The Grenadines, it’s no surprise that Vincy Mas is regarded as the last true Caribbean carnival that’s untainted by mass commercialism. As a result, it attracts visitors in their droves from around the Caribbean, Europe and North America.

For 2014, the carnival runs from 27th June to 8th July, but the official launch takes place on 3rd May. A place like SVG cannot possibly pack of all its vitality and cultural riches into just one-and-a-half weeks, after all!
