Twin Cities Carifest began as a grass-roots celebration of the Caribbean cultural heritage in 1994. 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.
