Ready to Join?


Calgary’s Carifest celebrates Caribbean arts and culture. The festival will kick off at Olympic Plaza with a parade down Stephen Avenue. Afterwards, you can join the celebration at Shaw Millennium Park and enjoy local, international and Caribbean entertainment, food, art and more.


If you cannot join me to see the parade as they walk through the downtown from the Olympic plaza starting at 10 am to the Shaw millennium park , you can come later to join me at the festival anytime from noon to 3 pm at the Shaw Millenneum park. I will be staying there till 3 pm but the festival will go on till 8 pm . You can stay there as long as you wish after 3 pm but it will not be part of the internations event unless another internations consul volunteers to take over the hosting duty from me at 3 .
