HISTORY OF ATLANTA CARIBBEAN CARNIVAL AND ACCBA

In 1987, a diverse group representing several Caribbean islands came together to familiarize the metro Atlanta community with Caribbean culture through the presentation of a West Indian style carnival. The first Caribbean Carnival in Atlanta was held in 1988 and became the official kick-off of the U.S. carnival season and brought thousands of visitors to metro Atlanta for Memorial Day weekend. The events surrounding Atlanta Carnival became a mainstay on the calendars of West Indians from all over the world.
