How to Spend Christmas in Turks and Caicos

Banner

Our resort decorates a spectacular Christmas trees that greets you as you arrive. The staff look forward to hanging decorations around the Tuscany each year, to add to the festive holiday atmosphere. Many restaurants offer a special Christmas dinner -- a perfect way to celebrate the end of the year as you bask in tropical warmth under the stars.

There are many ways to enjoy Christmas on Grace Bay beach.

Maskanoo Parade (December 26th)

Maskanoo is an annual event in the Turks and Caicos and is held “Boxing Day”, the day after Christmas (a holiday in Commonwealth countries like the Turks and Caicos).

Maskanoo has its roots in the ‘Masses’, a masquerade tradition that fuses traditional African culture with costumed balls held in the colonial era. On Provo, Maskanoo originated with enslaved people brought by the Bermudian salt farmers to work the salt ponds of nearby Salt Cay and South Caicos two hundred years ago, and the event is observed by the residents of Provo today.

On Providenciales, the Maskanoo parade on December 26th follows a route along Grace Bay Road between the Regent Village and Salt Mills Plaza. Grace Bay Road is closed to traffic for this event.

Food, drink and souvenirs are widely available from local vendors, and visitors can enjoy a street parade, local music, island food, arts, & entertainment.

Post-Christmas Beach Party

Following Maskanoo is the Post-Christmas Beach Party on December 28th, right on Grace Bay Beach. This annual event features live music, stalls selling authentic local “comfort food”, and sometimes even kayak racing.

New Year's Eve and Old Year's Night

On Providenciales, New Year’s Eve typically starts off with an island tradition called Old Year’s Night. Turks and Caicos residents typically attend church services in the evening, and church bells ring out late into the night to bring good luck into the New Year.

At midnight, fireworks are set off to ring in the New Year.
