Welcome to the National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago


The day to day business of the Commission is co-ordinated by the Chief Executive Officer and the staff of forty-nine (49) administrative and technical personnel.

The management of Carnival however requires multi-pronged actions and diverse strategies to react to changing situations.
Generally, functions are grouped and allocated to committees of culture aficionados, who volunteer their skills and expertise annually, to ensure that infrastructure, goods and services are provided effectively and efficiently.

The major committees appointed by the Commission include:-

  1. Tenders (standing Board Committee)
  2. Finance (standing Board Committee)
  3. Regional Carnival ( standing Board Committee)
  4. Operations and Services
  5. Parade of Bands
  6. Accreditation
  7. Hospitality

Over the years, these committees have traditionally assisted the Commission to oversee construction of all temporary stands, stages, vendor’s booths, Health and Emergency Services, crowd control, signage, House management, band control and the on going review of competition rules and training / retraining of Carnival judges.
