The Atlanta Caribbean Carnival is one of the largest annul festivals
in Atlanta, taking place around Memorial Day weekend each May and drawing
out large crowds for a colourful weekend of live music, Caribbean style
food and entertainment, culmination in a hue and lively and street parade
on the Sunday.
The event covers most of the traditional Caribbean Carnival bases including of course the parade, but also a J'Ouvert event the night before. The local bars and clubs get in on the act too, with Caribbean themed music and parties throughout the carnival, making this a great time to visit the city.
