This chapter examines the very nuanced ways race, class and gender are used in the marketing of Carnival in Trinidad. The chapter pays particular attention to various texts on organizers’ websites, and their promotional material – while in some instances, juxtaposing and/or comparing them to other Carnival texts. Due to the popularity of some of these businesses, their authority is inevitable and as such, they have a huge impact on how locals and foreigners understand and experience Carnival.
