Event Description

JAMAICA IS AMONGST THE LATEST COUNTRY TO ISSUE PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES AGAINST LARGE PUBLIC GATHERINGS DUE TO COVID-19 GLOBAL OUTBREAK.

“In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and internal consultations with our stakeholders and the Ministries of Health & Wealth, Tourism, and Culture, Gender, Entertainment & Sports, we have decided to postpone the staging of our Carnival in Jamaica 2020 Road Marches to October 2020,” said Kamal Bankay, Chairman of the Carnival, in a statement released today.

“The decision to postpone an event that is five weeks away is an imperative one and came after much consultation and deliberation.”

Thankfully, the entire celebration has not been canceled — just delayed. Jamaica’s Road Parade (Bacchanal Jamaica, Xaymaca International, and Xodus Carnival) will now take place on Sunday, October 25. All costumes purchased will be honored at the later date.
