Each year, during the last weekend of July, the Trinidad & Tobago Cultural Society of BC presents the Caribbean Days Festival. This event draws a crowd of exuberant fun-lovers to North Vancouver’s Waterfront Park for a weekend of parading, dining, socializing (liming) and dancing in the sunshine.

This year’s Festival takes place on the weekend of July 29-30, 2017.

This is a weekend of tropical rhythm, cuisine, carnival and culture as only the Caribbean can offer. Over the years, the Festival has grown into the largest Caribbean event on the local calendar. With tens of thousands of attendees, it is possibly the largest cultural event of its type in BC, period.

Caribbean Days Festival is held in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The setting is Waterfront Park, a large green space with a picturesque view of the Vancouver skyline. Waterfront Park is divided into North and South zones, each with their own attractions during Caribbean Days.

Caribbean Days Festival is free to attend, is open to all ages, is wheelchair accessible and close to public transportation.

The Festival grounds are split into two parts. The North side of Waterfront Park has a food concession area and a large beverage garden. Enjoy spicy Caribbean food as well as other international fare, then relax with an ice-cold drink in the hot sun.

On the South side, there is an outdoor music festival. Dancers and other performers entertain while bands play Reggae, Calypso, Latin and other international sounds to a large crowd. There is a Family Zone with face painting, a children’s playground and other activities.
