May 26 - 30, 2022

The carnival tabanca is real but Atlanta and Jump & Wine Travel are here to save the day. While most carnivals in the Caribbean islands are on hold,  Atlanta Dekalb Carnival will return in May 2022.

If you need a cure for your carnival tabanca, look no further than playin’ mas in Atlanta with Jump & Wine. If you’ve never been to an island carnival, this is a great way to wet your feet and test your carnival stamina for the road.

Get ready to wine up yourself in the streets, eat & drink to your heart’s content, and party like there’s no tomorrow. Jump & Wine will do the planning for you so you get to have all the fun without the stress.

Why Atlanta Dekalb Carnival?

ATL Dekalb Carnival 2022 is one of the largest carnivals in the United States, and North America. It’s a great way to satisfy your carnival tabanca while we wait for the islands to get back to having carnival. Atlanta has a large Caribbean population so many bands and fetes are owned by persons from the Caribbean.

Since Atlanta Dekalb Carnival is smaller than the carnival in the islands, it’s a smaller strain on your pocket while still getting to have the time of your life. Who doesn’t love value for your money?!

Plus, if you are based in the United States, no passport necessary. You might even be able to drive over.

Ladies, Jump & Wine is for you!

Ladies, if you’re tired of waiting on your friends or simply want someone else to do all planning, Jump & Wine Travel is designed for you. This trip is for you if:

  • you love a good party
  • your ideal trip consists of the perfect mix of partying and exploring a culture
  • you don’t like stress and like having that handled for you

Unfortunately, if you are below the legal drinking age (21 y.o.) or not vaccinated for COVID-19, we cannot accommodate you on this trip.

If you are looking for a slower paced trip or do not like crowds, consider one of our wine trips.

The Itinerary

Day one – Arrival in Atlanta

Arrive in Atlanta to let the fun begin. If you opt for airport pickup, we’ll see you there. Otherwise, meet you at the hotel for check-in where your welcome gift and costume package await you.

Day one & two – Fetes

Get ready to party like there’s no tomorrow. Ideally, you arrived in Atlanta with your waist loosened but if not, these fetes will be great prep for the parade on Saturday. FYI, Jump & Wine is #teamnosleep. Sleep who?!

Day three – Parade

Don your costume, beat your face, take some cute pics and get ready to wine up yourself on the streets to the sweet, sweet sounds of soca.

Day four (and optional five) – More fetes!

We’re in no rush to go home. We’ll continue the fun into another day (or two) of partying and forgetting about our responsibilities. A last hoorah before we have to go.

Day five (or six) – Depart Atlanta

All good things must come to an end. It’s time to reflect on the memories we just made together and say our goodbyes. Hopefully, we’ll see you on another of our trips.

Warning: You might need a vacation after this trip. Consider one of our wine trips.
