The Fighting Spirit of Our Ancestors

This Year Charleston Carifest salutes the Fighting Spirit of Our Ancestors. Each year, Charleston Carifest opens with a Symposium designed to share information on the featured country. While Carnival is traditionally a time of festivities, Charleston Carifest adds an educational component to allow the community to learn more about the similarities and differences of the islands in the Caribbean.
