Behind the Scenes at Junkanoo

CLOSED

ABOUT THE EVENT:

Junkanoo’s standing as one of the Caribbean’s most celebrated and spirited carnivals is undisputed.

From colorful costumes to exuberant dance routines, participants spend months preparing for the pageantry of this street parade accompanied by the steady beat of whistles, cowbells, horns, and goatskin drums that starts in the wee hours after midnight.

Catch this celebration of Bahamian culture and history on Boxing Day—aka the day after Christmas—as well as on New Year’s Day and many Saturdays throughout the summer. The largest Junkanoo celebration takes place on Bay Street, in downtown Nassau, but Bahamians across the 16 islands celebrate this joyful tradition.
