The Stardom Calypso Tent Every Wednesday after January 11th 2014
Commonly called "Stardom," this event is held every Wednesday
before Carnival at the Krazy Koconuts in Castle Comfort. It is a Calypso Show
Series by which, through a method of elimination that lasts for
weeks, the Calypsonians to participate in the Calypso Monarch Competition
are chosen. The serious calypso commentary and mix of humour and
local scandal makes the tent a favorite among locals.
Showdown Mas Camp Every Friday after January 17th 2014
Showdown Mas Camp is another Calypso tent. Showdown Calypsonians perform on Friday nights before Carnival at Harlem Plaza, Newtown.Their 'Champ of the Camp' Competition is held the Thursday night before Carnival Monday.

Lagoon Street Jam
This one is a definite favorite. It's another pre-taste for the
real thing: Calypso, Bouyon Music, lots of people and Kubuli would
accurately describe this jam. Like the other activities, this is
open to everyone because Carnival in Dominica is a time when all
differences are put aside.
