Jamaica Carnival is the fastest growing carnival in the Caribbean. It was created to bring its own unique energy, flavor, culture, and spread ‘one love’. Originally with one mas band “Bacchanal Jamaica”, it has partnered with popular bands from Trinidad. Many carnival revellers describe it as the “adrenaline” shot of Carnival. There are four major bands in Kingston and one in Ocho Rios in which most events take place in resort areas in both locations. The culmination of weeks of partying from beach parties, breakfast fetes, and , J’ouvert takes to the streets with each band hosting their own street parade with colorful costumes. This is carnival not to be missed, in addition to being a less costly option to Trinidad Carnival.
