Haitian President Jovenel Moïse announced last Sunday, that the National Carnival 2021 will be held in Port-de-Paix in the North-West region of Haiti, on the Boulevard des Trois Rivières.
The announcement was made while Moïse was participating in a festival on the occasion of the patronal feast of the Immaculate Conception in the City of Port-de-Paix which was celebrated on December 8. The information has also been confirmed by Haiti’s Ministry of Culture.
“The national carnival will take place this year in Port-de-Paix, on Boulevard des 3 Rivières. I decide to do you justice. You are considered to be forgotten by the Republic. Today I want the whole world to remember you. The main musical groups, that is to say, Sweet Micky, Djakout, T-Vice, must come to Port-de-Paix if they want to perform at the national carnival, otherwise, they cannot,” declared the President of the Republic.
The 2021 Carnival is scheduled to be held on Sunday 14, Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 February 2021.
Haitian Carnival is a celebration held over several weeks each year leading up to Mardi Gras.
