21 years and counting ....

2014 marks 21 years since a grassroots group of Caribbean/Minnesota fans began a new tradition in Minnesota.

Always on fourth weekend in July, Carifest features a Friday night kick-off dance party (the location varies), in the spirit of Jouvert in Caribbean carnival, and a Saturday festival from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on West River Parkway & 17th, between Plymouth & Broadway Avenues in Minneapolis.
