Durham Carifest 2019

Posted On Thursday June 06, 2019

Durham Carifest is a family-friendly regional event that celebrates and promotes the diversity of the Caribbean in the Durham Region. Along with major acts like local and international reggae performer Razor B, calypso legend David Rudder and Canada’s own all girls’ reggae band Rayzalution, the stage will also showcase student performances from Viola Desmond Public School and Bolton C Falby PS.

The day-long event will feature a full musical lineup, DJs, marketplace and food area. While you’re visiting an array of vendors or savouring some delicious Caribbean treats, feel free to take part in a variety of activities sponsored by Durham District School Board and other generous community partners, or test your skills at the three-point basketball contest.      

A special Kids Zone sponsored by Enchanted Castle invites you to enjoy live entertainment, face painting a petting zoo and a special appearance by the King of Wakanda. Plus, you won’t want to miss a host of other prizes and surprises, sure to put a smile on your little one's face.

Tickets are $10.00 and can be purchased online at Eventbrite or snapdtix, or visit Kyroche Beauty Supply at 475 Westney Rd N, Ajax, ON, L1T 3H4 to buy your tickets in person.
