Trinidad Carnival 2021 off says Prime Minister Rowley


Trinidad Carnival was spared at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, but it doesn’t look it will escape the shutdown next year.

Speaking at the Spotlight on the Economy Forum on Monday at the Hyatt Regency, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley said: “Today I can put everybody on notice, unless there is some dramatic wind that will blow across us whereby Christmas pandemic would have been a thing of the past, Carnival in Trinidad & Tobago in 2021 is not on.”

Carnival was scheduled to take place on Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 February 2021. It is just one of the Pre-Lenten carnivals that are expected to be cancelled.
