Move over, Toronto Pride!
There’s a much more colourful and happier festival happening in Toronto.
The Peeks Toronto Caribbean Carnival is an exciting four-week cultural explosion of Caribbean music, cuisine and revelry.
It is the largest cultural event in Canada and the largest outdoor festival in North America.
Taking place from July 8 to August 12, 2018, this year marks the 51st anniversary of the carnival in Toronto and will feature more floats, music, celebrities and fun than ever before.
The theme “Canada’s Celebration of Freedom and Diversity” will infuse every aspect of the festival, from the parade route to the shows and all performers including singers, pannists and calypsonians.
The city of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area will come alive with the pulsating rhythms and melodies of Calypso, Soca, Salsa, Zouk, Reggae, Chutney, Steel Pan and Brass Bands.
