The Caribbean Tourism Organization has declared 2019 as the Year of Festivals. Comprising Dutch, English, French and Spanish-speaking countries and territories, the Caribbean offers tourists the luxury of selecting from a wide array of destinations to experience unique cultures and traditions.

“The Year of Festivals will focus on the fascinating events that have become an integral part of the Caribbean tourism calendar. Festivals help to energize communities across the region while giving visitors more reasons to enjoy our destinations,” said Hugh Riley, Secretary General of CTO.

With the Caribbean offering a wonderful blend of culture, beautiful and welcoming people and magnificent sites to see, visitors are definitely going to have a memorable experience.

Here are significant carnivals with cultural and historical groundings to attend in June if you are thinking of taking a trip to the Caribbean.
