Buzz Growing for the “Caribbean’s Greatest Summer Festival”
The buzz continues to grow for Antigua Carnival, the annual festival that is considered the Caribbean’s “greatest summer festival.”
This year’s Carnival will be a 13-day event from July 27-Aug. 8, with a full lineup of events including five street party experiences such as the Opening Parade, T-shirt Mas, Junior Carnival, J’ouvert, Carnival Monday, Carnival Tuesday and Last Lap, as well as popular Carnival events such as Panorama, Calypso Monarch, Party Monarch, and Caribbean Melting Pot.
It’s a dynamic celebration of the twin-island country’s rich culture and one of the region’s most energetic Carnival festivals.
“There is a new buzz around Antigua’s carnival regionally, as more carnival-followers are drawn to our extensive carnival schedule, unique style of mas, invigorating music, colourful costumes, and for the real party-lovers the non-stop partying options available during the season,” said The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority’s Director of Tourism for the Caribbean and Latin America Charmaine Spencer.
Now, Antigua and Barbuda has launched a new program that will provide carnival enthusiasts with the chance to win an all-access pass to Carnival.
Lucky winners will receive a trip to participate during the entirety of the event, including entry to official events.
Antigua tourism officials are in the midst of a regional roadshow to drum up interest for the event and enter potential winners.
We are also speaking to those travelers who appreciate that Antigua and Barbuda is easily accessible and provides an intimate, relaxing, and fun getaway,” Spencer said.
