According to information from the event website, this is the 32nd year of the Caribbean Carnival which includes live soca, reggae and Afro-Caribbean Music. It was being held at Central Park in downtown Atlanta.

In 2003, several leaders of local masquerade bands came together to form the Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Bandleaders Association. The group has produced the annual Atlanta Caribbean Carnival since 2005.

The group estimated the expected crowd for the 2019 parade at between 2,000 and 3,000. The event itself, they said, could draw between 15,000 and 20,000.
