Jul 14, 2019 - Aug 3, 2019
The Toronto Caribbean Carnival has its Official Launch on July 9 at Nathan Phillips Sq but many of the main attractions don’t happen until mid-July and Toronto Caribana’s biggest attraction is the Parade (August 3).
Over 10,000 masquerades participate in the parade, strutting and dancing all along the 3.6 km route in fantastic costumes, to the vibrant Caribbean beats of the mas bands.
There is an Admission for Exhibition Place viewing but usually you can watch the parade along other parts of the Lakeshore Boulevard for Free.
