 Carnival     

The Atlanta Caribbean Folk Festival offers a weekend of fun for the whole family with live entertainment, great Caribbean food, and activities such as a Caribbean art show, a Caribbean film festival, a Caribbean author book review and signing, a Children’s carnival, and a soccer tournament. The festival ends with an exciting costumed parade of bands known as “carnival”.

In 1987, a diverse group representing such Caribbean countries as Antigua, Granada, Trinidad & Tobago, and others formed Atlanta Peach Carnival, Inc. to familiarize Atlantas with Caribbean culture. To bring the festival to life, the Atlanta Peach Carnival, Inc. received endorsements from a variety of Atlanta businesses which included the Atlanta City Council, the Atlanta Convention and visitors Bureau, of Cultural Affairs, the Georgia Endowment for the arts, and others.

The first Atlanta Caribbean Folk Festival premiered Memorial Day weekend in 1989. The festival was successful and has become an annual event. Each year, more and more people come from all over to experience Caribbean life and the excitement of carnival at the Atlanta Caribbean Folk Festival. It is estimated that 400,000 will attend the festival this year! Come enjoy the rich culture and history of the Caribbean Islands.
