Welcome to Carnival
Trinidad and Tobago

Carnival is one of the key pillars of the Trinidad and Tobago economy. It is estimated that the 2016 total carnival visitor expenditure was approximately US$51 million. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted this industry. After the announcement that the “in person” component of the carnival was cancelled for 2021, CARIRI partnered with Banj, IDB Labs and others to create the Creative Tech Lab TT: A challenge that aims to connects creatives and developers online and stimulate innovation and creativity that will lead them to the co- creation of a set of fun and sustainable TT carnival experiences available online all year long for the world to enjoy TT carnival anytime while supporting the digital economy of Trinidad and Tobago.
