Carnival in Antigua is a big affair, held annually from the end of July to the first Tuesday in August. Since it’s official start in 1957 the event has grown into a 10 day island wide celebration for locals and a main attraction for tourists visiting the island.

Main carnival events are held in the streets of St Johns and ‘Carnival City’ in the Antigua Recreation Ground. Events include Antigua Carnival Prince and Princess Competition, Junior Calypso Competition, Female Calypso Monarch Competition, Queen Of Carnival Competition, Teen Splash Competition and National Panorama among others.
