Orlando Carnival Downtown 2019
May 26, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Orlando Carnival turns 32, and the countdown to celebration has begun. For the past 32 years, we have presented, promoted and preserved our Caribbean Carnival culture through our Carnival celebration. Our Caribbean style carnival is very much like the Mardi Gras celebrations of New Orleans. We utilize the brightly colored costumes, rhythmic music, and a combination of dance that is truly Caribbean. In 2017 we had over 20,000 participants, with thousands more in attendance for 2018.
Carnival celebrations have been known to attract the largest congregation of culturally diverse attendees and participants. This year we take great pride in inviting your organization, your company, to be a part of this community based cultural event that will provide direct exposure to the largest growing, segments of the community which encompasses the Indo-Caribbean, the Afro-Caribbean, the Hispanic-Caribbean and the Asian-Caribbean.
Orlando Carnival is an event for the entire family, particularly those interested in experiencing the rhythmic sounds of Caribbean music, steelpan music and authentic Caribbean food. Come out and celebrate with the Caribbean American community with from many Caribbean Islands and Countries including Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica, Guyana, St. Vincent, Virgin Islands, St. Lucia, Barbados, Grenada, St. Kitts, Dominican Republic, Belize, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and many other islands and various states in the USA.
One of Orlando’s largest cultural spectacles – Orlando Carnival Downtown – will take place once again over Memorial Day Weekend. On Sunday, May 26th join the annual celebration of Caribbean culture in the form of live performances, food, and a parade of Mas Bands through downtown Orlando.
The free parade runs along Church Street between the Amway and Camping World Stadium.

A variety of local artists including Tara Lynne, Footwrk, New Generation Branches Steel Orchestra, and I-Land Rebels Band will also be performing.
