NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The return of Junkanoo is one of the most anticipated announcements coming in this post-COVID era.

Keile Campbell fills us in.



Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Mario Bowleg says he expects Junkanoo to be held this year and is waiting on the proposed action plan from the Junkanoo Corporation of New Providence (JCNP) and The Bahamas National Junkanoo Committee (BNJC), but with the downward trend in covid cases, he believes there’s no reason why there can’t be an in-person gathering for Junkanoo.

At the beginning of the year, many Bahamians voiced their criticisms on the low quality of video production for the virtual online event ‘spirit of junkanoo’ which was also condemned by the junkanoo community

Bowleg says Bahamians will see an improvement in the audio-visual production of the event adding that it will be professionally done by a tried and tested Bahamian company.

When asked whether there will be a junkanoo contribution to the cultural presentation for when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visit in March, Bowleg said that is being handled by the Director of Culture.
