NOTICE REGARDING THE 2020 CARIBBEAN DAYS FESTIVAL
AT WATERFRONT PARK IN NORTH VANCOUVER
22 April 2020 – The Trinidad and Tobago Cultural Society of BC have been proud and
excited to host the Caribbean Days Festival at Waterfront Park in North
Vancouver for over 30 years. This year, however, due to the COVID-19
worldwide pandemic we have had to make the difficult decision to
cancel the Festival.
The health and welfare of all our volunteers, vendors, artists and the
general public is our number one priority. The recent ruling of the
Minister of Health, Adrian Dix, and Dr. Bonnie Henry, the Provincial
Health Officer, has shown that the only way to stop the spread of this
virus is to avoid large crowds which is why we made this unfortunate
Although we are all very disappointed by this decision, we are looking
forward to firstly, an end to this devastating situation that has shaken
our world and secondly, putting our time and energy into continuing to
produce a successful Caribbean Days Festival.
Thanks for your continued support everyone and please stay safe.

The President and Board of Directors

Caribbean Days Festival is held in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The setting is Waterfront Park, a large green space with a picturesque view of the Vancouver skyline. Waterfront Park is divided into North and South zones, each with their own attractions during Caribbean Days. The North side of Waterfront Park has a food concession area and a large beverage garden. Enjoy spicy Caribbean food as well as other international fare, then relax with an ice-cold drink in the hot sun. On the South side, there is an outdoor music festival. Dancers and other performers entertain while bands play Reggae, Calypso, Latin and other international sounds to a large crowd. There is a Family Zone with face painting, a children’s playground and other activities.
Caribbean Days Festival is free to attend, is open to all ages, is wheelchair accessible and close to public transportation. Over the years, the Festival has grown into the largest Caribbean event on the local calendar. With tens of thousands of attendees, it is possibly the largest cultural event of its type in BC, period.
