Jr. Carnival Tickets are Investing in our Future!
Jr. Carnival, or as it is better-known in the islands, “Kiddies Carnival” is where we introduce the next generation into the culture of mas and Carnival. It is an initiation that most never forget, and many go on to become the Future Leaders of this cultural festival.
SATURDAY OCTOBER 8TH
“Following emancipation, the newly freed slaves took over Canboulay; And that is how we have J’ouvert!”
Traditionally, the celebration involves calypso/soca bands and their followers dancing through the streets. The secret to its difference to the Mas Day Parade is traditionally it starts before dawn and revelers dance into daylight with the rising of the sun, caked in mud, oil and other pasty materials. The head trip comes from the early morning rise, into messy, sweet costumes, out to the road for sweet soca and the incremental rise to its peak, a few hours after sunrise. It is boasted from some as the BEST PART of Carnival, which is a tall order, because ALL Carnival is Magnificent! Miami Carnival J’ouvert is not an event to miss.

PARADE OF BANDS & CONCERT
SUNDAY OCTOBER 9TH
Mas Bands are the heart and soul of carnival parades.
Short for Masquerader Band, Mas Bands are a creation of international designers and local Carnival Producers that form the cornerstone of any Carnival.
Artist Creations in costumes deliver a narrative to the heart and soul of carnival, lending relevance, design and story-telling to the phenomenon, along with music and community engagement.
The final product is a work of art in motion, delivered through a human interactive experience.
