JULY 27 – AUGUST 5, 2016
The Antigua Carnival is a ten-day celebration of music and dance held annually on the island from late July until the first Tuesday of August.
You will be sure to encounter colorful costumes, Carnival Queen pageants, food fairs, parades, talent shows and plenty of great reggae and calypso music from live bands and performers. The best day is the j’ouvert, when all of the islands’ brass and steel bands take to the streets and are joined by revelers in body-paint and costumes. Dancing continues through St. John’s town from dawn until dusk.
