Martinique Carnival takes a new route in 2022


Martinique Carnival in Fort-de-France officially got underway on Sunday 27 February this year, and concluded on Ash Wednesday, 2 March.

Although it was in the same city as last year’s event, the festival was moved outside the city centre; the six kilometre route had finally been agreed upon on 19 February 2022.

The new route began in Sainte-Thérèse, paraded along the wide Maurice Bishop Boulevard, passed through the port and returned to the starting line at Dillon Stadium via the RN9 main road.

Now-familiar Covid safety protocols were strictly enforced during the celebration.
