Cariwest is a lively three-day Caribbean Arts Festival that takes place annually in the heart of downtown Edmonton. It began in 1984 as part of the Klondike Days Parade (now K-Days) and was a way for Caribbean immigrants in Edmonton to celebrate and share their culture.

Cariwest festival events attract more than 60,000 people over three days. The festival is a show of pride for Caribbean culture. It employs the talents of musicians and dancers from all over the world to bring the sweet melodies of Soca, Steel Pan, Reggae, Hip Hop, Calypso and Brass Bands to Canada's festival city.

Carnival arts offers all of us a dynamic tool for self- expression and exploration. A tool to develop new forms of looking at the world and its cultures.

It makes us discover what we have in common, and to celebrate what makes us different. The power and creativity that underlies these art forms can transform lives.

Join hands with All Ah We, and together we will dance the song of life!
