Miami Carnival, the vibrant celebration of Caribbean culture, is thrilled to announce its 40th-anniversary festivities, scheduled from October 12 to 15, 2024, in Miami, FL. Miami Carnival has been a pulsating heartbeat for four decades, spotlighting the rich tapestry of Caribbean traditions and leaving an unforgettable imprint on South Florida’s cultural landscape.

With its infectious soca and calypso beats filling the atmosphere and spectacular costumes gracing the parade route, Miami Carnival exudes joy, togetherness, and cultural heritage.

Fueled by the unwavering dedication and passion for Carnival, the Miami Broward One Carnival Host Committee(MBOHC) is gearing up to orchestrate one of the most anticipated cultural events of the year. This milestone anniversary marks four decades of honoring the best Caribbean culture and heritage, solidifying its status as one of North America’s premier cultural tourism attractions.

Supported by the Greater Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau, Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, Cultural Affairs Council, Miami-Dade County Mayor, and the Board of County Commissioners, Visit Lauderdale, and Broward County Commission, Miami Carnival invites guests to indulge in a plethora of Caribbean and international delicacies, beverages, and artisan crafts, enriching the celebration of Caribbean culture and pride.

Miami Carnival has evolved into a cornerstone of the Caribbean diaspora, drawing participants and spectators from around the globe. Anticipated attendees from across the US, Caribbean, Africa, and Europe will converge in Miami for this year’s festivities.

Over twenty masquerade bands and eight steel bands will compete for top honors, and attendees will also be treated to the infectious rhythms of soca at the mega concert.
