Desperadoes, one of many large steel bands in Trinidad formerly know as “Gay Desperadoes’ changed their name to Desperadoes after a trip to New York ”Apparently, many Homosexuals men took to following the band believing that Gay Desperadoes meant that all the members were homosexuals” -

Face Mask VII Jouvert Cruise 2017 Edition

Several year ago we developed this idea of a FACE MASK JOUVERT CRUISE. (FMJC) The purpose of which, is to promote Boston’s Trinidad Style Carnival to a wider audience, not those primarily from the Caribbean Diaspora.

FMJC follows the traditions of Trinidad and Tobago’s Jouvert which is also celebrated on several other islands throughout the Caribbean.  Attendees are encouraged wear a homemade costume, although, not mandatory, also, each guest receives a facemask before boarding.

The ambience is very festive and definitely Caribbean flavored with Calypso and Soca music provided by a local Deejay and rhythm section, occasionally a live artist is featured direct from Trinidad.  Every guest is treated to a Caribbean style cuisine catered by a local restaurant (See their AD below), also part of the ticket cost. A well stock bar of Caribbean rums and beers are available at an additional cost.   

Parking is available across the street from 60 Rowe’s Wharf. Please arrive early and allow ample time to find parking. We recommend you get there early, park and take a walk to Faneuil Hall Marketplace – minutes away from Rowe’s Wharf and enjoy a little of Boston before we set sail.  For additional things to do and places to see visit MASSVACATION. - #Bostoncarnivalvillage

FACE MASK 2016 SURVEY

Thank you all for taking the time to complete the survey. We learned a lot and plan to implement several of the suggestions, however things like extended time is impossible due to the current situation here in Boston, however Better coordination between the Dj and Rhythm section, more music less talk and a better quality bar we can fix and will.

Overall you appreciate very much what we are doing and that was very much evident in the survey 70 % have been to more than 3 cruises. 25% came form as far as Connecticut and Texas.
