Fete freshmen: 30+ new fetes to debut for Carnival 2019

Ladies Night Out

Ladies Night Out

Editor's note: First published on November 26, 2018 and updated on January 31, 2019, with new fetes that have been added to the Carnival calendar. 


You know Carnival is in the air when the first edition of the fete calendar drops.

Copies are made and posted on your office wall so you know at a glance which pump you and the crew are heading to. Whatsapp groups start buzzing about who's organising the maxi. Old "friendships" are rekindled with that one committee friend who has all the links. 

We have a long season to look forward to which means that we can space out the pace ahead. It also means that while you've probably already booked tickets for your faves, you may have some extra time to check out some of the new Carnival fetes on the block.  

From "Bacchanal Brunch" to "A Really Cheap Carnival Cruise", here are over 30 new fetes making their debut on the Carnival 2019 fete calendar.
