During the Christmas season, there are numerous venues that host "Parang" concerts. Parang is a genre of folk music that originated in Venezuela and was brought to Trinidad by Venezuelan settlers during the Colonial era, as both countries were once colonies of Spain. The songs are sung exclusively in Spanish, and all tell the story of the birth of Jesus Christ.

Recently, a new form of Parang has emerged, dubbed as "Soca Parang". This new sub-genre combines instrumentation from traditional parang with soca and is sang in Trinidadian English, usually centred on the festivities of Christmas as opposed to the birth of Jesus.
