After a 2 year hiatus in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, the Carnival in Jamaica (CIJ) National Stakeholders Committee announced via press release that this year’s Jamaica Carnival will begin on July 01, 2022.
According to Kamal Bankay, co-chair of the umbrella group Carnival in Jamaica (CIJ) National Stakeholders Committee.
The season will culminate with the grand road parade on July 10, 2022 throughout sections of the Corporate Area.
Bankay stated “we are beyond happy to be able to announce, plan and execute another amazing carnival season for all the CIJ revellers we have missed since 2019. Having the event sector closed was devastating to us all but we believe there is no better way to officially start summer than with a carnival. Additionally, Carnival in Jamaica is the biggest entertainment and tourism earner for our country, with an economic impact of over $4 billion annually.”
