Culture & Heritage

Welcome to

Charleston Carifest

Charleston Carifest is a Caribbean Carnival celebration in honour of Caribbean American Heritage Month. It is three days of food, fun, music, and costumes submerged in education and culture. This is the creative and artistic expression of Caribbean people. Join us and embrace our culture, play Mas, savour Caribbean food, dance to Soca and Reggae and have pure unadulterated fun!

Junkanoo, a Bahamian national festival

Junkanoo, a Bahamian national festival, is a kaleidoscope of colours and sound. The rhythmic sounds of cowbells, goat skin drums and whistles, accompanied by an array of brass instruments, create a sweet musical beat that will move you; while brilliantly coloured costumes capture your eye, and bring much visual delight. Junkanoo Members will join in the Carifest Parade.
