The first attempts at a Bahamas Carnival 2019 season event happened on March 1st. Enigma Carnival Band hosted it’s an annual Midnight Mas event. The event was a logistical nightmare for attendees and ticket holders. Despite the large response, the organizers didn’t make perversions for the increase in attendance, as a result, the gates were closed and the party got shut down due to capacity.
Bahamas Carnival season 2019 events got off to a late start with the first recognized event of the season happening on Sunday, March 10, 2019, as a part of the Liquid Weekend featuring a promotion by a domestic
Club Owner of Primetime Lounge. While the Saturday, March 9 event was promoted with much vigour and had a better talent line up, two things worked against the March 9 production weather and trust from the target market.

Photo Recap: Midnight Mas Rewind
March 22, 2019 Bahamas Masqueraders hosted their annual GLOW event at the Mas Band Camp on Fire Trail Rd (Nassau, Bahamas) and much to their surprise the turnout was overwhelming.
While the bigger bands are finding success in the marketplace with a growing number of young adults entering into the equation. The more mature consumers seem to be opting out of these experiences. Not because of lack of interest by age demographic in attendance.
Smaller bands have tried their hand at events and have not seen the same success as the big bands more so because of popularity and lack of brand presence in the marketplace.
