‘Humanity’ is the theme for the 2019 edition of the Carnival Calabar and Festivals.

It was unveiled moments ago by Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State where he said there was need for people to humane in their activities in order to have a better society.

The unveiling of the theme was done at the Executive Council chambers of the Governor’s office which is a deviation from the past where themes have always been unveiled before sponsors in elaborate events at Lagos State.
