2019 Curaçao Carnival
The Curacao Carnival celebration is one of the most elaborate and longest lasting festivals in the Caribbean. Over the course of several weeks, normally taking place anywhere between January and early March in time with the season of Lent, locals and visitors alike take to the streets of Curacao for days of celebrations, contests, and parades.
Examples of the type of parades you and your guests can expect to enjoy as spectators or participants include Carnival parades for different age groups (such as children and teens), the Banda Abou parade, and the Gran Marcha parade, among others. Other festivities include the Tumba festival, jump ups and jump ins—Carnival groups that assemble and dance in the streets together, often selling t-shirts to raise money so they can participate in the highlight of the festival, the Gran Marcha.
