Things to do in Barbados in March

Barbados March Activities

This page is focused on things to do in Barbados in March.  We have another page if you are interested in looking full list of things to do in Barbados that are available year round.
The highlights of the March calendar include two events:

Sandy Lane Gold Cup (Horse Racing)

Sponsored by Sandy Lane Resort and the Barbados Turf Club, this thoroughbred race is considered to be the most prestigious in the Caribbean. It’s also among the top few annual events on the Barbados social calendar. Run since 1982, the race is as much a chance for the upper echelons of society to show off their finery and the hoi polloi to enjoy a good party, as it is a competition to decide the best horses and jockeys. To get things off to a festive start, the race is preceded by a performance of the Royal Barbados Police Force Band, along with a parade of dancing majorettes and stilt walkers.

On March 30th 2012, there is an international 20/20 Cricket Match at Kensington Oval between Barbados and Australia.  20/20 cricket is much faster paced than normal test match cricket and usually only lasts a few hours.

The kickoff of the Oistins Festival, most of which takes place in April, but there are several other things to do during the month.

Here is a more complete calendar of things to do in Barbados in March.
