The first signs of Carnival in Jamaica began in the 1940’s with the opening of the University of the West Indies. This happened when the students from the Eastern Caribbean, especially those of Trinidad and Tobago, recreated the festival on campus of the elaborate Carnivals they enjoyed from back home. A tradition that continues on the campus to this day. However, Carnival at the time was still viewed as a foreign concept for the rest of the Jamaican public.

In 1989, the late Jamaican music pioneer, Byron Lee, (June 27, 1935 – November 4, 2008), one of the creators of Carnival in Jamaica, conceptualized a plan to bring the music, energy and vibe of Trinidad & Tobago’s annual Carnival event to Jamaica.

Sunday, April 22, 1990, marked the very first Mas festival which united Jamaicans musically, culturally and socially, as Byron Lee & Friends staged the first-ever Jamaica Carnival (which featured a week of activities from April 14-22, 1990), an event which has since evolved to become one of the biggest annual events in Jamaica, and undoubtedly, the Kingston Metropolitan Area’s premier festival.
