Carnival Checklist: A Guide to Real Culture at Trinidad Carnival

February 5, 2015

When: Feb. 5-8 and 12-14, @8pm
Where: Queen’s Hall, Port of Spain.

The 3Canal Show is a staple of Trinidad Carnival. This year they give us RAW, a “music theatre dance spectacle comedy.” The show is adults only: Nothing is sacred, and the type of wining and performances their dancers put on is something you have to see to believe. The band’s event is one of the most anticipated and well attended cultural events each year, with as many foreigners flocking for seats as locals. This group also has one of the most popular J’Ouvert bands in the country, featuring both music trucks and traditional Iron and Steel Truck. Cost: US$50 (show only)
