Our signature fundraising event kicks off "the road” to Cariwest 2023!


This event is your opportunity to preview all the participating Mas Bands' costumes for the 2023 Cariwest Festival! Join us for this up-close showcase of costumes.

Join us for the show and stay for the party after with live DJ! Explore the pyramids while sipping on a cocktail and enjoy the tropical vibes.


Band leaders will be on site to take additional orders, so if you haven’t secured a place with a band, this is the event for you!

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.
