Shine D.C. (2018)

Saturday, June 23, 2018 - 5:00 PM

For many years, the DC Caribbean Carnival was on of the biggest carnivals in the east coast. Second to only Labor Day and more recently Miami Carnival weekend. That weekend was typically action packed with major events from Friday to Sunday.

Our mission at Hookie Life Ent. has always focused on restoring the vibe by providing a weekend of great events, experiences and memories in D.C. area. After careful consideration, we’ve decided to add another event to enhance an already impressive line up events. This has led to a collaboration with one of the biggest names in Soca entertainment. Back to Basics Entertainment and Hookie Life Entertainment are proud to announce the return of Shine to Washington, DC for Hookie Weekend, Saturday June 23rd. Shine has been missing from the D.C. area since 2011 and with its return, it is primed to be one of the biggest events for Hookie Weekend.

Shine D.C. kicks off at 5:00 PM and goes until 10:00 PM. It will be the perfect endcap to Saturday morning’s Lion’s Pride J’ouvert and will feature some of the best DJs in Soca from NYC, D.C., Miami and the Caribbean. Shine D.C. will take place at Karma DC.


Riddim & Road (2018)

Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 11:00 AM

Leh we play a mas? Why not! When the paint and powder are all cleaned off its time to reset and return to the road for mas, Riddim & Road style. With D.C. Carnival being sorely missed, the Hookie Life team decided 2017 was the year to bring the beauty of mas back to the Nation’s Capital, with a bit of a twist. Masqueraders came out in costumes from carnivals all around and in their own creations! Make no mistake mas is back in the DMV. Organize your crew, your costumes and join us on the road this year!
