Batabano Grand Cayman

April 4 @ 1:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Launched in 1983 by the Rotary Club of Grand Cayman, Cayman Carnival Batabano is held annually in May – a vibrant highlight in the Island’s entertainment calendar. Carnival is a premier cultural celebration in the Caribbean – a kaleidoscope of music, dance and pageantry with roots mirroring the region’s diverse history of African and religious influences. Colourful costumes reflect the vibrant landscapes, heritage and culture, with the music the very rhythm of island life. Carnival in the Cayman Islands has a distinct flavour as the islands are home to a melting pot of over 100 nationalities – one country celebrating many cultures!

With the costumes, choreography and festivities becoming more elaborate each year, Cayman Carnival Batabano is a much-anticipated event. It is a time to celebrate local surroundings, to showcase creativity, to voice social issues and, of course, to party and unite – and there’s nothing like a great party to bring people together!

2024 Batabano Schedule is as follows:

May 3rd – Friday Night Fete “Outta De Blue”.
May 4th – Adult Street Parade, Food Festival, and Las’ Lap Street Dance.
May 5th – Batabano Sunday.
May 6th – J’ouvert Road Parade
