Caribbean Days Festival features an amazing outdoor music festival. Each year, our main sound stage plays host to a lineup of bands playing Soca, Reggae, Calypso, Latin, African and other international sounds to a large crowd. Singers, dancers and other performers entertain with sights and sounds from a wide range of cultures.
Festival-goers are welcome to bring their blankets and find a spot on the grounds from which to take in the show. Prepare to “get something and wave” when the fever of the island music takes over. Caribbean music gets people moving, young and old… there’s nothing like it!
