Mission Statement

To promote a broader understanding and deeper appreciation for Caribbean culture by seeking the interest of Atlanta Caribbean carnival groups and using the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival as a vehicle for the promotion of Caribbean culture among the broader Metro Atlanta community.

Description

In 1987 a diverse group representing several Caribbean islands came together to familiarize the metro Atlanta community with Caribbean culture. The 1st Caribbean Carnival in Atlanta was held in 1988 and became the official kick-off of the U.S. carnival season bringing thousands of visitors to metro Atlanta for Memorial Day weekend. Our goal is to serve as an advocate to represent the needs of the bandleaders and to offer mentoring and aid to those taking part in the art form of producing carnival. Since 2005 ACCBA has produced the annual Atlanta Caribbean Carnival. The group has brought thousands of patrons to venues throughout Atlanta including the most recent Historic 4th Ward Park to partake in the music and food of the Caribbean. ACCBA is dedicated to producing events that helps increase awareness of the various Caribbean art forms and education. Thank you in advance for your help and support in making Atlanta Caribbean Carnival a huge success.
