Barbados canceled its annual Crop Over Festival, which was slated to kick off in June, one of many festivals and events across the Caribbean that are being canceled or postponed due to Covid-19.

A statement posted on the Caribbean Tourism Organization site called the decision “difficult,” and it called the Crop Over Festival the island’s “premier” arts and culture showcase, a two-month affair of craft markets, soca, calypso competitions and parties that celebrate the end of the sugarcane season.

The festivities would have culminated on the first Monday in August with the Grand Kadooment street parade, which involves thousands of costumed locals, visitors and, occasionally, celebrities, including Rihanna.
