The first thing you need is your costume! Costumes will be available for online viewing at GenXSJamaica.com in November when we launch. Here, you’ll be able to purchase your favorite piece from our website. You’ll input your sizes, select add-ons such as a small or large “backpack” (feathers), make your (down)payment, and wait for confirmation.
J’Ouvert packages will also be available for purchase on our website. If you’re not sure what J’Ouvert really is, it’s similar to carnival and signals the start of the two-day Carnival festivities. Persons jump in shirts and short sets or swimwear-like costumes which are less eccentric than carnival costumes and get covered, from head to toe, in water, paint, mud, chocolate, powder, etc. Stay tuned for more details on the time and location!
GenX was the first band to offer an all-inclusive Xperience in Miami and we have brought that first-class treatment with us for all our GenXS Jamaica masqueraders! This means your GenXS costume or J’Ouvert package will include amenities and bonus items for your convenience such as a branded travel goodie bag, access to our outstanding all-day culinary Xperience, a branded mug for our unlimited drinks, branded goodies from sponsors + so much more!
A few days before Carnival in Jamaica, we’ll host what’s called a Mas Camp in Kingston where we distribute costume and J’Ouvert packages. Dates and venue TBA.
Each costume has a specific day and time for collection. We will disseminate an address closer to the time and all you have to do is come for pick-up. We DO NOT ship costumes so you must make yourself available to collect your costume if you’re out of parish or island. This includes booking your flight and accommodation.
After you’ve received your package(s), all you have to do is meet us at the venues and party with us all day!
