About Jacksonville Caribbean Carnival
You don't have to take a tropical vacation to feel completely immersed in Caribbean culture. For one weekend in summer, the Jacksonville Caribbean Carnival inundates a corridor of the city with a colorful, feather-filled parade—a veritable conga line of island culture. The parade route snakes toward the venue of the festival that follows, where food and art vendors fill out the ranks of live musicians and other entertainers. The cultural exchange doesn't stop at calypso melodies, steel drums, cuisine, and costumes, either. Being organized by the Carnival Organization of Jacksonville, the festival also works to share the history and current realities of various countries, increasing understanding and interest in Florida's not-so-distant southerly neighbors.
