Jamaica Carnival 2020 (Bacchanal)
CHANGE OF DATE! Jamaica Carnival 2020 has been moved to 19th October due to Coronavirus.
Add this incredible party experience to your Jamaica holiday (you will need a week on the beach to recover afterwards!) Jamaica Carnival, also known as Bacchanal, is definitely a Carnival you should add to your bucket list and attend at least once in your lifetime, as it really is a spectacular event. Not your average street party, Jamaica Carnival is all about the people of Jamaica and a celebration of heritage and local customs.
Jamaica Carnival 2020 usually starts in January with the main events take place during the week of 15th-20th of April. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic flying bans opposed on many countries, Jamaica Carnival 2020 has been moved to October this year. Expect beach parties, street parties, breakfast fetes, concerts and street parades! Jamaica Carnival also includes an event called J’ouvert where everyone throws paint and powder at each other – it is is as messy as it sounds, but so much fun!
