The Ministry of Creative Industries and Innovation welcomed the reopening of the Fete Industry, on March 1st, 2022.


Subsequent to the Cabinet announcement on Thursday 24th February, which outlined that the staging of fetes would take place from March 1st, the first fete, ‘Daybreak’ held on Sunday 6th, was deemed a success.


Since this announcement, several promoters have indicated their desire to host events and fetes and have submitted their respective application to do so over the coming months.


The Ministry of Creative Industries and Innovation, based on the Cabinet’s acceptance of the proposal presented by the Promoters’ Association, wishes to advise persons desirous of hosting events that the three (3) hosting conditions remain in effect.


These three conditions include:


  • The number of patrons allowed at any venue will be determined by the size of the venue, to be determined by the Events Compliance Committee.


  • All event attendees including, but not limited to, patrons, service providers and auxiliary workers, must be fully vaccinated with a valid proof of vaccination OR present a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than forty-eight (48) hours prior to the event.


  • Authorization of events will be done by the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda.


After several discussions, and consultation, with the fete promoters, the Ministry of Creative Industries and Innovation remains committed to all event promoters, who are the drivers of the Orange Economy, as we prepare to stage the anticipated return of Antigua’s Carnival, with several pre-carnival activities in Antigua and Barbuda.
