CELEBRATING
55 YEARS OF
FREEDOM

ON DE ROAD AGAIN

#OnDeRoadAgain - Following two years of lockdown from the pandemic, we are ecstatic to announce the return of the Toronto Caribbean Carnival, which culminates a 4-day celebration on July 28-31, 2022

Celebrating the 55th anniversary of the Grande Parade which was first gifted to Canada by the Caribbean Community during Canada’s centennial celebrations, the Toronto Caribbean Carnival is a spectacular display of costumes, music, and culture. 

This Caribbean tradition of parading through the street was founded in celebration of freedom and emancipation from slavery and is appropriately celebrated on what has been recognized by the Canadian government as Emancipation Day weekend.
