If you’re looking for mouth-watering food and a huge street party, we know a festival you need to check out. 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 Saturday, July 27th and Sunday, July 28th, 2019.

Visitors can expect a weekend of tropical rhythm, cuisine, carnival and culture as only the Caribbean can offer. Not to mention, it’s one of the biggest cultural events of its type in BC; tens of thousands of attendees expected throughout the weekend.
The Festival starts at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, with a multicultural parade beginning at 12 St. & Lonsdale Ave. in North Vancouver. There’s Caribbean music, steel bands, as well as dancers, floats and music from many other regions.
Furthermore, the weekend features an amazing outdoor music festival. Each year, their main sound stage plays host to a lineup of bands playing Soca, Reggae, Calypso, Latin, African and other international sounds to a large crowd. Festival-goers are welcome to bring their blankets and find a spot on the grounds from which to take in the show.
There will also be amazing cultural foods, a large beverage garden, crafts and clothing, and amusement rides to spice up the weekend.
We’ll see you all on the North Shore this summer!
