Now with additional service on JetBlue, getting to the island is easier than ever.

Summer in Barbados is filled with energy and excitement. Crop Over, spanning from July 1-August 1, is Barbados' biggest, and best-loved festival which sees the whole island taken over by the party spirit. Dating back to the 1780s when the island was one of the largest sugar producers in the world, the end of the sugar cane harvest was always celebrated with a big party, and the tradition continues today with added extravagance and flamboyance. The festival launches with the ceremonial delivery of the last sugar canes of the harvest, “crop over,” and culminates with the crowning of the carnival king and queen. Events last five weeks and revelers can expect a heavy mix of live soca and calypso music, dancing, arts and crafts markets, invigorating parties, cultural presentations and more. The grand finale, and national holiday, known as Kadooment Day, occurs on Monday, August 1st with a colorful and lively parade of costumed revelers, live music and plenty of rum.

With a lively Crop Over Festival schedule and expanded flight options to accommodate the influx of visitors to the island, it has never been a better time to travel to Barbados via JetBlue Airways.
