About Carnival

Carnival in Jamaica began in the ’40s, when UWI students recreated campus versions of their home islands’ festivals. Jump to 1990, as Byron Lee & Friends staged the inaugural JA Carnival, the first mas festival in the ‘Land of Wood and Water’. Three decades later it became the Kingston Metropolitan Area’s premier festival, and one of the biggest events in Jamaica.

Jamaica’s jump up begins when Lent is over, with a series of big fetes, and climaxes with costumed bands on the road on what is known as Road March Day. Celebrations also take place in Ocho Rios which has its own carnival made up of five bands: Tainos, Maroons, Arawaks, Soca Junkies and Red Ants.
