Dominica Carnival  


                The carnival season is the festive time of year on the tropical island of Dominica. The carnival, which is held at the traditional pre-Lenten time, is a wonderful combination of calypso, shows and two exciting days of street jump-up. Dominica’s Carnival is formally opened about a month before Carnival Monday and Tuesday. In the year 2010, the carnival celebrations began on January 23 with carnival Monday and Tuesday taking place on February 15th and 16th respectively.   


                As it is with all the carnival celebrations in the Caribbean, there are many prizes to be won and the carnival in Dominica is no exception.  Some of the titles include Carnival King, Carnival Queen, Junior Calypso Monarch, Road March Song, Miss Teen Dominica and Carnival Princess.


                Some of the highlights of carnival in Dominica are:

·         National Parade and Official Carnival Opening


·         Junior Calypso Monarch 


·         Calypso Tent 


·         Miss Dominica Pageant


·         Lagoon Street Jam


·         National Calypso Finals 


·         Carnival Monday: Costume Street Parade


·         Carnival Tuesday: Street Jump-up


Carnival Monday and Tuesday are held in the capital Roseau but many other villages have small parades that are also very enjoyable. Being apart of carnival in Dominica is truly a fun and vibrant experience, so be sure not to miss it if you are planning a trip to the island.
