2020 Carnival Season



In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and internal consultations with the Ministries of Health & Wellness, Culture, Gender, Entertainment & Sports and Tourism and our fellow carnival stakeholders we respect the decision by the government to postpone the staging of our Carnival in Jamaica 2020 Road Marches to October 2020. The decision by the government to postpone an event that is five weeks away is an imperative one and came after much consultation and deliberation. This postponement to October 2020 gives us seven (7) clear months from the initial detection of the virus in Jamaica to provide a level of chronological distancing that shows that we are committed to protecting the citizens of Jamaica and tourists from unnecessary exposure to the pandemic COVID-19. With that being said, we value all of our employees that make an honest living from the Carnival industry here in Jamaica: our staff, event management agencies, production & logistics companies, costume designers, hoteliers, & transport providers.
