This is our 6th annual Scarborough Afro-Caribbean Festival! The last five years have been eventful and memorable with thousands of participants from all cultural backgrounds in attendance. This festival was established in 2012 by Heritage Skills Development Centre as two day community event aimed to celebrate culture, art and heritage of the African and Caribbean community. The festival acts as a vehicle of reorientation towards having pride in diverse cultures existing in our community. The event will help to build bridges between individuals and communities while promoting intercultural understanding amongst different groups. The festival also provides the opportunity for all guests to celebrate, share memories and network, thus eliminating barriers of race, ethnicity, culture and religion.
This year the Scarborough Afro Caribbean Festival is offering the entire family a wonderful two days filled with food, fun, great music, exciting performances, vendors and the chance to experience the rich cultural fabric that makes up our community. Please bring your friends and family to enjoy the spectrum of diversity. The event is free and open to people of all ages and cultural backgrounds.
