Abstract
This study investigates the economic impacts of the Calabar Carnival Festival in
Nigeria. A convenience sample of 464 attendees was used for the study. A semistructured,
self-administered questionnaire was employed in collecting relevant
social and economic data from respondents. The result supported the claim that
event tourism has positive economic impacts on the host community.
