[Atlanta, GA] – Hot on the heels of the recent Trinidad & Tobago ‘Taste of Carnival’, the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Bandleaders Association (ACCBA) is preparing to serve a whole buffet of Caribbean culture this May in the center of Georgia’s energetic capital city with the 2022 edition of the beloved ‘Atlanta Caribbean Carnival’.

‘Atlanta Caribbean Carnival’ which has been in existence for 35 years takes place from May 27th-30th 2022.  It is already gearing up to be a major highlight of the Memorial Day Weekend.  Which is the unofficial start of the US Summer festival season.

With all of the buzz following last October’s Miami Carnival, online communities of international carnival enthusiasts have been referring to the upcoming ATL extravaganza as ‘The Next Great North-American Carnival Experience’ on the calendar.

This Year’s Lineup

The event’s organizers have put all of their energies into curating an unforgettable holiday weekend affair. Attendees can expect lively fetes, J’ouvert, a wide array of cross-cultural food vendors, a beautiful display of costumes (inclusive of Carnival Queens) at the parade and an unmatched line-up of the region’s top performers onstage at the Atlanta Carnival festival village.

This year’s entertainment cast includes St. Vincent’s Skinny Fabulous, T&T’s Nadia Batson, Barbados’ Lil Rick & Edwin Yearwood, St. Lucia’s Motto and Grenada’s Tallpree. Skinny Fabulous will also be honoured with a proclamation by the city of Atlanta and will serve as Grand Marshall at this year’s parade.

Regarding the importance of hosting the upcoming festival within the metropolitan area of downtown Atlanta, ACCBA President Patricia Henry shared:

‘It is very important to showcase the culture in mainstream settings.  Where persons from various backgrounds can observe and embrace it. We want folks to come out and see what the Caribbean has to offer.  So the festival can be a platform for encouraging tourism for the entire region.’

The famous annual downtown Atlanta tradition has previously attracted celebrities such as stars from the Love & Hip Hop and Real Housewives TV show franchises and will this year feature the participation of Jamaican Reggae singer, actress, model, and brand ambassador D’Angel.
