Jump Into Cayman Carnivals!

Three times the fun. Two weekends. One destination.
Carnival in the Cayman Islands is fun to jump in, or just spectate.
For information on how you can be a part of Cayman Carnival, check out the links below.


Cayman kicks off summer a little earlier with our annual Batabano festival, which takes place every May. The word “Batabano” refers to the footprints that turtles leave in the sand when they come to land to make their nests.
A visual and cultural feast, this traditional carnival features a parade of stilt performers, dancers, masks and more.

Pirates Week

Pirates Week

Our Pirates Week Festival is the premiere Cayman Islands’ national festival. Awaiting you is a week of swashbuckling to be had by all. With parades, games, music, and fireworks there is something for every buccaneer to enjoy.
For one week in November, each of the Cayman Islands is invaded by pirates and there will be plenty of plunder for scallywags and landlubbers alike. The festivities begin in Cayman Brac with a welcome parade, followed by a bonfire after sunset and the first fireworks display of the week.
