About Us

Cariwest is one of Edmonton’s most colorful and vibrant festivals! Introduced more than 35 years ago in Edmonton , by the Western Carnival Development Association (WCDA). The festival provides a platform through which to share popular Caribbean music, cuisine and Caribbean carnival culture with Western Canada.

 

The 2021 Cariwest Festival will take place August 6 - 8, in downtown Edmonton! The 3-day event will combine a virtual Caribbean cultural showcase along with a limited in person experience to ease us back into our old vibes.
