Trinidad & Brazil (Rio) Style Carnival Scheduled for 2010 in Las Vegas

November 18, 2009 by  

Las Vegas Carnival, a USA / Trinidad based operation, announced today that it will host an annual carnival event in Las Vegas in late spring of 2010. The inaugural Las Vegas Carnival will be entitled “a Celebration of Life” and the official dates of the event will be released in the coming weeks.

Unlike the typical amusement park association with the word ‘carnival,’ the Las Vegas Carnival event is based on the global phenomenon of carnival, a pageant of costumed masqueraders, and is traditionally centered on the Calypso and Soca genres of music or Samba as is the case in Rio, Brazil. Carnival is an amalgamation of colors, transformed into costumes, dance supported by music and an array of different ethnic foods and art.

Carnival in Las Vegas shall expand on the traditional carnivals and include a more eclectic mix of Calypso, Soca, Samba, Hip Hop, Pop, Latin and Reggae. This experience is being designed to appeal to a worldwide audience and will start with a spectacular concert and music festival the day prior to the carnival celebration with an impressive lineup of well-known performers.

The purchase of costumes and travel packages will soon be available to the public via the Las Vegas Carnival website, but for more information about the carnival, including select travel and hotel partners, visit: Those wishing to experience the spectacle and grandeur of carnival can participate by purchasing costumes from a variety of themed carnival bands and also partake in a multitude of carnival parties (fêtes), concerts and shows.

Unlike Rio’s carnival experience, advanced Samba rehearsals will not be necessary and the carnival celebration shall be fashioned similar to that of the Trinidad experience which is more party-centric as masqueraders and their bands compete for the prestigious “Band of the Year” title and awards. The King and Queen costumes of each carnival band shall be worn by major Hollywood stars and the winnings donated to a charity of their choice. Las Vegas Carnival shall be broadcast and available to be viewed globally to a live audience with an online simulcast component.

More information about the Las Vegas Carnival in 2010 will be revealed in the coming weeks as Las Vegas prepares for its inaugural carnival event.
