Easter Goat Races

Easter Goat Races

As Easter approaches, our minds begin to anticipate one of the longest running sporting events in the Caribbean: the Buccoo Goat Race Festival! First run in 1925 (yes, folks have been racing goats in this corner of Tobago for almost 100 years), the Tobagonians of this sleepy village have a Barbadian (Samuel Callender) to thank for this poor man’s equivalent to the horse races — at the time reserved for the local gentry. Place your bets!

Uncommon Caribbean
is Steve and Patrick Bennett, two brothers from St. Croix changing the way people think about travels to the Caribbean by putting authentic aspects of island life and the region's unique cultural heritage in the spotlight ahead of the glitzy, one-size fits all tourist trap image popularized over the years.
