They arrive from cities across North America, and the Caribbean. Several Caribbean countries are represented in the parade such as Jamaica, Barbados, Antigua, Dominica, Haiti and Trinidad & Tobago. Several African countries and American High School parade bands have participated.
Some sponsors do have floats in the parade and several political leaders including the Governor of Massachusetts, Deval Patrick and his wife have opened Boston’s Trinidad Style Carnival.
The typical visitor is of Caribbean descent, however over the years many non Caribbean nationals have been attending the events, several of whom have gone on to participate in the parade. Boston’s Trinidad Style carnival is held in August, the weekend before Labor Day. The planned events are: Kiddies Carnival, King & Queen Show, Jouvert, Parade and Boat cruise. During months of May - August a multitude of cultural events are planned by several promoters and organizations.

Kiddies Carnival – A day of fun for children and their families. There is seating capacity for about 5,000 people in White Stadium. There are other entertainment such as Steel band music by young pannist, face painting, dance and lots of Caribbean and American food on sale. Kiddies Carnival is probably the only event in Boston totally dedicated to the family during the month of August. This environment is ideally suited for companies needing access to the family such as Toys R Us, Car seat manufactures and business needing access to the family directly.
Jouvert begins very early (about 6:00AM) and participants wear costumes of their own design. It is typically dark in terms of presentation and very humorous. An estimated 5,000 to 8,000 people attend this event, most arriving from out of town for the parade later on that day. To register or sponsor contact the Jouvert organizers link for details
