Immerse yourself in the authentic traditions of Martinique Carnival, a one-of-a-kind celebration.
Here, carnival is nothing like in Rio or Florence. Our carnival tradition dates back to the mid-18th century when slavery was still a reality. Back then, carnival was much more than a simple party. It was a means of reviving the collective memory and of representing scenes of everyday life through satire.
Nowadays, Martinique Carnival is steeped in this deep history and carries the strength of resistance and cultural expression within it. Each year, Martinican people come together with pride and passion to perpetuate this living tradition.
