Cariwest is one of Edmonton’s most colourful and vibrant festivals! Introduced more than 35 years ago in Edmonton, by the Western Carnival Development Association (WCDA). The festival provides a platform through which to share popular Caribbean music, cuisine and Caribbean carnival culture with Western Canada.
The 2023 Cariwest Festival will take place August 11 – 13, in downtown Edmonton! The 3-day event brings the full pageantry of the Caribbean in full display, showcasing visual, musical and culinary arts to the Western Canadian community.
