Antigua Carnival 2024: Summer Cultural Explosion

The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Ministry along with the Antigua Barbuda Festivals Commission are excited to present the 2024 Antigua Carnival.

The Antigua Carnival has become the Caribbean’s greatest summer festival. It is a vibrant culmination of culture and art that brings the heart and soul of Antigua and Barbuda to life.

Antigua and Barbuda has proven time and time again that it is a destination worth visiting. The colorful shops showcased in the capital city of St. John’s, the mouthwatering meals served in restaurants, scenic sites and views along with the warm friendly hospitality, portrayed by the population are some captivating attributes of these twin-islands.

And, of course, with 365 white and pink sandy beaches adorning Antigua and Barbuda’s coastline along with turquoise clear waters, there is a saying here:

Visitors to Antigua and Barbuda this summer will celebrate in style and make unforgettable memories at the annual Antigua Carnival.
