The 2017 edition of Antigua Carnival kicked off last Friday, July 28th and continues from 3pm today with the Jr. Carnival Parade, followed later in the afternoon by the young rising stars of the festival showing off their talent in the Jr. Calypso & Soca Monarch competitions at Carnival City, ARG.

The ACB George "Nugget" Joseph Panorama competition kicks off with sweet pulsating pan music at 8pm on Friday, followed by the highly anticipated and exciting FLOW Party Monarch competition on Saturday, at 9pm. The face-off sees crowd favourites such as Tian Winter, Ricardo Drue, Claudette "CP" Peters and other talented artistes vie for the coveted titles in the Groovy and Jumpy segments of the competition. Great entertainment continues on Sunday at 8pm, as nine Calypso finalists battle for the throne against reigning monarch, Queen Thalia in the Wadadli Beer Calypso Monarch competition.

Whether you live here or you're on holiday, J'ouvert morning is not to be missed! Join a troupe to experience the largest street party with live music, dancing and drinking until sunrise, or set your alarm for 3am and head out to see the exciting jump-up, and Judging of the Bands from 12pm. After eleven days of great entertainment, the festivities culminate on Tuesday, August 8th with the spectacular Parade of the Bands at 12pm and Last Lap from 7pm until midnight.

View the parade routes and catch all the action live, or via live stream by downloading the Carnival app. Experience some more fun using our What's On guide.

Have a great Carnival and be safe!
