Twin Cities Carifest

For more than two decades, Twin Cities Carifest has been the premier Caribbean Festival featuring Caribbean food, music, arts, crafts and a traditional carnival parade with colorful costumes and dance. Twin Cities Carifest began as a grass-roots celebration of the Caribbean cultural heritage in 1994. Now approaching its 21st anniversary, Carifest has grown to provide festival-goers of all ages and backgrounds the ultimate arts fusion experience featuring: colorful Caribbean flair, danceable live calypso and reggae beats, vibrant parade costumes and more. Each element is as diverse as the islands themselves. $10; $7 in advance.
