Bahamian Junkanoo

December 26, 2022 - January 1, 2023


One of the most renowned and energetic carnivals in the Caribbean is the Bahamian Junkanoo. held on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day in the brisk morning hours every year. The occasion is a display of Bahamian culture that has been shaped by the island’s lengthy history. It takes the shape of a street parade, with participants running for hours along Bay Street in Nassau while dressed in vibrant costumes. The throbbing sounds of cowbells, horns, and goatskin drums in the open air warm the patrons. In fact, the event has gained popularity, and you can still attend smaller versions of it over the summer. The event, which brings together men and women from all walks of life, actually takes months to prepare for.
