The Indian Ocean has an annual carnival that is staged annually in Seychelles and next year the set dates are the 25 to the 27 April. This carnival is listed as an event for the Vanilla islands (the Indian Ocean Organisation regrouping the islands of the Seychelles, La Reunion, Mauritius, Madagascar, Comoros, Mayotte and Maldives) and it remains the only carnival where all the best and most famous carnivals parade together and are followed by cultural trues from the Community of Nations.

The International Press have been covering this carnival because of the explosion of colour it it provides, but also because of the diversity of culture displayed at this unique carnival. The press has coined this carnival as the 'carnival of carnivals'.
