Miami, Florida 

The road to Miami Carnival is a long one.   Carnival is split between two of Florida’s largest counties, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami, resulting in more territory and more parties.  You need a guide to navigating between the parties held on a rooftop overlooking downtown Miami, on the sands of Historic Virginia Key Beach or the invigorating streets of Las Olas.  

Miami is home to one of the biggest music festivals in the world, bringing in the biggest Dj’s, the most prominent musical artist, and people from all parts of the world.  Carnival is not different; it gets bigger every year, better every year, and brings people from every part of the Caribbean diaspora.    

The vibes never stop in Miami.  From the week before Carnival Sunday expect to fete three times a day. Breakfast fete, followed by a day cruise, and then start the night with your favorite Dj wherever they decide to set up shop.  By the time last lap fetes come around on post carnival Tuesday, you will be well-travelled, and well feted.
