Celebrate Maskanoo This Boxing Day in Turks and Caicos Luxury

Each December 26th, guests of luxury Turks and Caicos resorts in Providenciales enjoy a front-row seat to the festival of Maskanoo. A celebration of TCI’s rich West African and Caribbean heritage, Maskanoo is a Boxing Day celebration unlike any other.

The festival unfolds throughout the streets of Grace Bay in a gorgeous kaleidoscope of traditional costumes, music, food, and art. Guests of Beach Enclave Turks & Caicos are invited to discover firsthand why Maskanoo has become TCI’s most anticipated cultural event.

What is Maskanoo?

While many countries around the world celebrate Boxing Day, there remains some debate over the holiday’s exact origin. One of the most widely held theories is that Boxing Day began as a British tradition in which servants were given the day off after working on Christmas.

Masters would often pack a box of Christmas leftovers for their servants to enjoy, hence the term “boxing.” Over the years, various countries have created their own unique Boxing Day traditions.

But few are as unique or exciting as Maskanoo, an annual Boxing Day festival found exclusively in TCI. Derived from a combination of colonial masquerades and the Caribbean tradition of Junkanoo, Maskanoo features a full day of cultural activities, including an elaborate parade.

Local vendors line the streets to offer guests everything from authentic food and drinks to one-of-a-kind art and crafts. Each year’s festivities cumulate in beautiful firework displays that mark the end of an unforgettable day of food, fun, and culture.
