St John’s, Antigua and Barbuda: An Unforgettable Fusion of Culture, Colour and Excitement is about to start in the twin-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda, as the Carnival 2023 will begin. The Carnival has been scheduled to start on July 27 and will end on August 8, 2023.

The organising authorities have invited the general public of the nation and people across the world to attend the Carnival in Antigua and Barbuda.
