After a period of eager anticipation, the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival proudly announces its return as a unified festival for 2024, promising a vibrant celebration of culture, tradition, and unity.

The 37th Atlanta Caribbean Carnival, scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend, May 26th to 29th, will bring together communities, artists, and enthusiasts from around the Caribbean diaspora and beyond.

This year’s event holds special significance as it marks a cohesive and united celebration, reflecting the resilience and strength of Caribbean culture. Organized by the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Bandleaders Association (ACCBA), the festival boasts a diverse lineup of events curated to showcase the dynamic rhythms, artistry, colorful costumes, and captivating cultural elements that define Caribbean heritage.

From pulsating Soca beats to mesmerizing steel pan melodies, attendees can expect a sensory journey into the heart of the West Indies. The festival’s official downtown Atlanta Caribbean Carnival parade route, featuring full street closure on May 25th, will be followed by a relocated stage in the parking lot of the festival village at Westside Park for a post-parade concert extravaganza.

In addition to the parade and concert, the festival season will feature beloved events such as the Children’s Carnival on May 11th, the ACCBA J’ouvert returning as a nighttime affair on May 24th, and ‘Submerged,’ a new cooler fete experience on May 26th.

Patricia Tonge Edigin, President of ACCBA, expressed her excitement about the unified festival, stating, “We are thrilled to announce the return of the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival as a unified festival for 2024. This year’s event embodies the spirit of togetherness and celebrates the rich tapestry of Caribbean culture. We invite everyone to join us for a fantastic, safe, and memorable time.”

Under the theme ‘One Caribbean Carnival,’ the ACCBA has assembled a diverse lineup of performers from across the Caribbean, including Trinidad’s 2024 Road March Champ Mical Teja, Jadel, SVG’s Problem Child, Barbados’ Lil Rick and DJ Cheem, Antigua’s Burning Flames and Tian Winter, Jamaica’s Kiprich, USVI’s Pumpa, St. Lucia’s Motto and Teddyson John, Dominica’s Asa Banton, who will also serve as a 2024 Parade Grand Marshal, among others.

The Atlanta Caribbean Carnival serves as a vital platform for cultural exchange, fostering understanding, appreciation, and unity among diverse communities. As it returns in full force for 2024, the festival reaffirms its commitment to celebrating diversity and promoting inclusivity.

The Westin Hotel Peachtree Plaza and the Courtyard Marriott Atlanta Downtown have been named the official host hotels for the 2024 Downtown Atlanta Caribbean Carnival, ensuring attendees have convenient accommodations during the festivities.

With its rich tapestry of events and diverse lineup of performers, the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival promises an unforgettable experience for attendees, celebrating the vibrant culture and spirit of unity that defines the Caribbean diaspora. Mark your calendars for May 24th to 27th, 2024, and join in the festivities celebrating the best of Caribbean culture in the heart of Atlanta.
