About the event
TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO CARNIVAL
The yearly Trinidad and Tobago Carnival occurs just before Ash Wednesday, featuring vibrant costumes and joyful celebrations. Prior to the street parade on Carnival Monday and Tuesday, there are cultural events like “band launch fetes.”
Locals either celebrate actively or prepare for the festival, reminiscing about the prior year’s festivities. While calypso music historically played a central role, Soca music has become the dominant genre, replacing it. The festival also showcases stick-fighting, limbo competitions, and the iconic costumes known as “mas.”.
