Vancouver’s Caribbean Days Festival is roaring back to North Van this July.
The Festival had humble beginnings in 1988 when a few Caribbean friends organized a picnic. Now presented by the Trinidad & Tobago Cultural Society of BC, it has exploded into a colourful celebration of all the culture Caribbean nations have to offer.
Caribbean Days begins with a multicultural parade featuring costumed performers from any and every nation on the planet before winding up in Waterfront park for the festival itself, where over 50,000 people pack in every year to indulge in the festival’s authentic food and entertainment. Try some of the best jerk chicken this side of the continental US, or take in a performance from some Soca dancers.
Admission is totally free – food and gifts are available for purchase inside the park.
