Children’s Christmas Street Parade
Every year just before Christmas, the children of Grand Case organize a street parade with floats, music and dancing. This event is truly extraordinary for residents and visitors alike. Even though we don’t have snow and all the usual trimmings related to Christmas, Grand Case really knows how to make Christmas special, especially for families.
Harmony Nights Street Festival
From January through to the end of April, Grand Case hosts the famous Harmony Nights
every Tuesday, when pedestrians take over the street and a whole host of local arts and crafts stalls and several bands are set up all along it. The highlight is the big brass that walks up and down the road, with their steel drums and even a ‘conch shell’ player. Wear comfortable shoes as you will find yourself dancing in the street.
Schoelcher’s Grand Case Fete
Every 21st of July and a couple of days leading up to and after this date, is the Grand Case festival to commemorate the end of slavery on the French side. Usually there is a church service in the morning followed by breakfast at the community centre and afterwards the road is closed off to traffic for music and children’s activities that go on well into the night.
Grand Case Boat Races
Almost every Sunday afternoon during the summer months, weather permitting, there is a local boat race organized on the beach in Grand Case, often with boats sailing over from Anguilla to participate. Visiting this is a wonderful experience, half the fun is watching the ‘shouting competition’, eating ribs in the sand and cheering for your favorite boat. Don’t forget to bring your camera as pictures of the boats sailing, with their large sails and the back drop of the Caribbean Sea, are spectacular.
Every Sunday Calmos Café
has a live Reggae band playing on the beach. During high season they have a live band usually on Thursdays, playing salsa often ending late. The
also has live music most Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, depending on the season. La Noche
also provides music during the week.
