In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, though the City of Baltimore has not yet officially cancelled the parade, the Kanaval Planning Committee voted to suspend planning for 2020 and focus our efforts on remaining healthy while social distancing and reconvening for the 2021 carnival season. 


For those who have already paid their deposit, we would like to offer you two options for your deposit:

1. Refund your deposit

2. Defer your deposit to the 2021 carnival window . If you elect this option , you will also receive additional discounts and/ or swag for next year.

Please provide your response by May 30, 2020. If no response is received, we will automatically defer your deposit to 2021.


This is an unprecedented situation and we are in this together. We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.
