The Barbados Crop Over Festival 2018 will continue as planned.
Word of this came from the National Cultural Foundation.
Following an extensive briefing session with Minister of Creative Economy, Culture and Sports, John King and the new permanent secretary to the Ministry Deborah Payne, it was confirmed that the season will commence with the scheduled events on the official calendar.
Minister King again articulated his intent to support the initiatives previously planned for the current festival and his confidence in the competence of the team to execute a successful production.
With this announcement, the Crop Over events will kick off on Sunday, with the BTPA Crop Over heritage bus tour in association with Carmeta's.
