WASHINGTON DC CARNIVAL ACTION

» Photo Galleries » Carnival » DC




Trini Jungle Juice can clearly remember the first DC Carnival, when we linked up with the SocaWeb and Supreme Team crew outta of New York to head to the nation's capital to show some love to DC's #1 DJ Sprang International. We had a ball. Why? Two words... "MUD BAND". We like to refer to DC Carnival as home of the Mudders & Masqueraders. Back in the day, there weren't any events besides the actual Parade to really attend or talk about. But trust us, DC has grown to be one of the bigger, more enjoyable Caribbean Carnivals in the United States.


DC Caribbean Carnival is one of the fastest growing Carnivals in North America. Established in 1993, this carnival has developed from nine bands and approximately 150,000 spectators the first year to 25 bands and well over 300,000 spectators according to estimates by the Washington Metropolitan Police. To date, all of the participating groups have been local to the DC Metropolitan Area, comprising of representatives from every Caribbean country. The carnival has enjoyed support from several local, national and family-owned businesses.


DC Carnival is an annual event produced by DC Caribbean Carnival, Inc., a 501(C) 3 non-profit organization based in the District of Columbia . The purpose of this event is to bring to fruition an annual Caribbean style parade in the District of Columbia called "DC CARNIVAL", develop and encourage cross-cultural programs within the Washington Metropolitan Area community serviced by DCCC in the expansion of Caribbean culture, and educate youths and adults in the Caribbean arts, crafts and culture.
