Cariwest is one of Edmonton’s most colorful Festivals! Introduced in 1984 by the Western Carnival Development Association, Cariwest provides a platform to share Caribbean art, music, cuisine and carnival culture with Edmonton and Western Canada.


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.
