Edmonton’s 2023 Cariwest Caribbean Arts Festival takes place from August 11th to 13th. We are so excited to be returning to the streets of downtown Edmonton and Churchill Square.
The 3-day event includes a Friday Night Costume Extravaganza, a Saturday Parade and a Caribbean Village throughout the weekend including live entertainment, a Kids Korner, savory Caribbean cuisine and the Caribbean Marketplace.
