Junkanoo Summer Festival

Junkanoo Summer Festival

Spectators can grab a whistle and experience the thrill of Junkanoo in the summertime at this downtown Nassau street party. Every Friday and Saturday in July, masqueraders armed with bugles, cowbells and goatskin drums dance along the harborfront and through the town displaying the colorful fun and flavor of the Bahamas. Junkanoo is at the heart of this summer festival, but arts and craft and Bahamian gastronomy are also highlighted.
