Montserrat: Montserrat is all set to host Carnival 2023 under the theme- “Celebrating over 60 years of Mas, Pageantry, Calypso and Revelry”.

The festival is slated December 16, 2023 to January 2, 2024. The calendar of events was also announced.

Director of the Montserrat Arts Council Kenneth Silcott stated that the tentative calendar serves as a reminder to tourists and other stakeholders that Carnival is just around the corner.

“The early release of the draft calendar is crucial since it enables travellers to effectively plan their trip to Montserrat for Carnival 2023. It also motivates stakeholders and private promoters to develop plans and work towards the successful execution of their events. This can only be beneficial for our Tourism and Access divisions.”

This year the calendar hosts over 20 MAC sponsored and privately promoted events ranging from pageantry to steel pan, to calypso and Soca, to parades and fetes.
