Pre-Booking FAQs

What is pre-booking?

On Carnival Tuesday 2022 we opened for pre-booking which guaranteed masqueraders a spot in The Lost Tribe in the next Trinidad & Tobago Carnival.

The value of your package (US$150) will be applied to your costume at registration. *Please see Terms & Conditions


I pre-booked with the band. How much do I have to pay to confirm my costume?

The pre-booking fee (US$150/TT$938) will be applied to your costume downpayment. To confirm your registration you will have to pay the downpayment balance e.g. US$320/TT$2,000 downpayment amount will require you to submit the balance of US$170/TT$1062.

Masqueraders who wish to add a backpack to their costume, please note you will be required to pay a downpayment equivalent to 50% of the backpack cost by October 15th, 2022 to reserve this add-on.


Female/Male: TT$2,000 (US$320)


Does pre-booking mean I have a confirmed spot on the road for 2023?

Your spot is confirmed once you complete your costume selection and the required costume downpayment within 5 days of the start of registration.

Your non-refundable, pre-booking deposit will be applied to your 2023 costume package down payment. You will be required to complete the full down payment of the selected costume package of your choice within five days after the registration start date in August.

Persons who fail to complete their costume package down payment within the first five days after the registration start date will forfeit any and all monies deposited.

 Costumes must be paid in full by December 31st, 2022.  

Am I guaranteed my first choice section?

Masqueraders who registered between March 1st and 3rd, 2022, and complete their costume downpayment within the first 5 days of registration are guaranteed their first choice section.


I can’t make it for Carnival 2023 anymore.
