Grand Marshals revealed for Atlanta Caribbean Carnival 2024

The Atlanta Caribbean Carnival Bandleaders Association (ACCBA) has revealed a lineup of distinguished guests and popular personalities for its 37th annual celebration, set to take place from May 24 to 27, 2024.

As stated in a release from the organization, the attendees of “North America’s fastest growing Caribbean Carnival” includes Georgia State House Representative Segun Adeyina, former State Representative and current Gwinnett County Chairperson candidate Donna McLeod, media executive and community activist Le’Dor Milteer, and popular Dominican artiste Asa Bantan.

The Bouyon boss will serve as the Grand Marshal along the parade route and is set to perform at the festival’s post-parade concert at Westside Park on Saturday, May 25.

ACCBA President Patricia Tonge Edigin expressed her excitement for Asa Bantan’s involvement saying, “Asa truly deserves this, not only is Asa a Soca/Bouyon artiste but he gives back to those in need in his homeland and who better to represent Dominica other than Asa Banton; it was a pleasure to select him as one of our Grand Marshals.”

The festivities will feature various events across the city, including the Children’s Carnival on May 11, the ACCBA J’ouvert on May 24, the Grand Parade & Concert on May 25, and the new cooler fete experience ‘Submerged’ on May 26.
