Caribbean Days Festival isn't just a picnic in a park.. it's the cornerstone of an entire Summer Series of Events presented by the Trinidad & Tobago Cultural Society of B.C. Here's what the complete lineup looks like:
Lonsdale Quay - Waterfront Park
North Vancouver, BC
Multicultural Street Parade
The Festival starts at 10 AM on Saturday, July 25, 2015, with a Multicultural Street Parade beginning at Sixth Street & Lonsdale Avenue in North Vancouver. There is Caribbean music, steel bands playing, as well as dancers, floats and music from many other regions. The parade follows a route that ends at Waterfront Park where the Festival is held.
Island & International Food Fair
The Festival grounds are split into two areas. The North side of Waterfront Park has a food concession area and a large beverage garden. One can enjoy spicy Caribbean food as well as other tasty cosmopolitan fare. Then relax with an ice-cold drink in the hot sun.
Tropical Rhythms Sound Stage
On the South side, there is an outdoor music festival. Dancers and other performers entertain while bands play Soca, 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.
Waterfront Outdoor Party
This year, don't miss our Tropical Explosion Outdoor Dance - under the stars and on the pier at the Lonsdale Quay. Just a quick walk over from the festival site and easy access from the Seabus.
