Carnival In Tobago

Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago does not only take place in Port of Spain, though it may seem like that from the media coverage. Areas all over the country celebrate their own Carnival with jouvert, parade of the bands, steel band compettions from Arima, to San Fernando to Tobago (and many villages in between).I recently came across this information on Carnival Activities and Mas Camps in Tobago, I have never been in Tobago for Carnival, however they do seem to have lots to do if you are interested in the celebrations on the sister isle:

Main events 
TUCO calypso shows every week, including clashes of Tobago calypso tents, Tobago Soca Monarch shows, Tobago Calypso Queen shows
Soca Under the Samaan Tree (2nd week in January)
Soca Spree (1st week in January)
Pan Trinbago preliminary Panorama judging in pan yards throughout the season
Department of Culture’s Carnival Caravan – a traveling show which takes traditional carnival characters and music in villages around Tobago for three weekends preceding Carnival weekend
Junior Carnival Xtravaganza – panorama, calypso, speech band and school masquerade finals
Mas competitions – kings, queens, individuals of the bands and ole mas competions
Tobago House of Assembly’s Inter-Divisional Show – arguably the most attended and watched show on the island at Carnival, it features a Ms. Personality and Calypso Monarch competitions
