 So many carnivals, where do you go? Which ones do you choose? It’s feels like the carnival season is nearly over when the Barbados Cropover is in full swing, Grenada Spice Mas is enroute and St Lucia is nothing but a past memory.

The Ibiza Soca Festival 2019 has also come and gone, but don’t worry, this soca festival is so popular that it happens every year, so start planning early for 2020. I attended the Ibiza Soca Festival 2018 and it was lit! If you missed all of the sun, sea, and Soca of Ibiza’s Soca Festival earlier this month, you missed one of Spain’s most extravagant soca festivals. But, as we all know, this isn’t the only can’t-miss soca festival of the year and there are still many more upcoming soca and fete carnivals and festivals yet to come.

Well, if you are still carnival hungry and looking for a soca festival to attend, keep reading as The Real Soca Deal shares some upcoming soca carnivals and festivals you can still make it to this year:
