The Feting Never Stops: Upcoming Caribbean-Styled Carnivals 2024

By Published March 07, 2024

Originally posted on the blog Sokah2Soca ( We bring you only the best new music, while Island Vybe Radio rocks it live on the air!!

What Carnival Tabanca are you talking about? With so many upcoming Caribbean-style carnivals in the Caribbean, North America, and across the pond in England, there is no limit to the 'feting' for the rest of 2024. We have also provided a list of states in the US that also have small but growing Caribbean-style festivals and carnivals that West Indians living in the US have created and continue to grow. These smaller carnivals provide an avenue for Soca stars to tour year-round, earning income while performing in venues across the US.

Having said that, please note that in the USA, there are many small West Indian style carnivals across the country, apart from Brooklyn and Miami: 


Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Arizona, Orlando, South Carolina, Philadelphia (Philly), New Orleans, Hollywood, Charlotte, Charleston Carifest, Houston, and Baltimore Washington One Carnival, Virginia Beach, Twin Cities Carifest, Jersey City Carnival, Jacksonville Florida Caribbean Carnival, WIIC Hartford Parade, Chi Carnival Weekend (Chicago's Carnival Experience Weekend), Caribmask (Raleigh Carnival), Boston Caribbean Carnival, Columbus Caribbean Festival, Virginia Caribfest, Cambridge MA Carnival, Dallas Carnival Caribbean Fest, Long Island... phew!


Then there are other carnivals that we failed to note above, and those are from the US Virgin Islands: St. Croix Festival, St. Thomas, and St. John Celebration. US carnivals are sourced from: Joanna E/Where to Celebrate Caribbean Carnivals in the US.

The following list provides the name and scheduled dates for the major carnivals that revelers look forward to attending.
