The culture of Carnival involves parading through the villages in costumes and masks dressed as masquerades. We invite you to join or form a Masquerade Band and play mas with us on July 1, 2023 as we bring the rich culture of Carnival to Charleston, SC. Join in the fun and dance through the streets of Charleston en route to Brittle Bank Park.
