Caribana Weekend 2024: Thursday, August 1st - Monday, August 5th 2024 advertises and sells tickets to the majority of Caribbean inspired events and parties taking place over Caribana 2024 weekend. Toronto's Caribbean Caribana festival has grown exponentially since its start in 1967 and is currently North America’s largest cultural festival. What was once a three-day event has now grown into three weeks of celebration, absorbing most of the city with its infectious feel-good vibes.

Over a million tourists are expected in Toronto during the August long weekend to experience everything Caribana weekend has to offer. The beauty of Caribana weekend 2024 in Toronto is the varied audience it attracts: everyone from families across Canada and the U.S, young singles looking for a good time, to celebrities throwing Caribana themed parties in clubs across Toronto.

Starting Thursday with Dayfete on the Roof at Toronto Event Centre to the Cruise in the 6ix, we kept the party going all weekend long. Featuring new events this year, Oasis and Carnival Pool Experience at Toronto Event Centre. Our most epic Caribana party yet, DayLit, was nothing but fun in the sun at Cabana Pool Bar! Sunday Blocko was the best way to end off Caribana weekend and dance the day away at Rebel nightclub. We can't wait to do it all over again this year for Caribana 2024!

The Toronto Carnival 2024 officially kicks off with the Official Festival Launch at Nathan Phillips Square. Thousands of people are expected to attend this weekend event that will feature live music, an array of delicious Caribbean food (Jamaican, Trinidadian, Cuban), insightful art displays and theatrical performances that showcase Caribbean inspired life. If you can’t make it to this one, no need to worry, there will be over a hundred official and unofficial Caribbean events to see and experience such as Pan Alive (the highly entertaining steelpan competition), the Junior Carnival Parade and the King & Queen Competition - one of the Toronto Caribbean Carnival's craziest events has the leaders of the mas (masquerade) bands compete to win the title of King and Queen of the 2024 Caribana parade.

The weekend's signature event is still, of course the Parade itself being held Saturday, August 3rd, 2024 at Exhibition Place & Lakeshore Boulevard (8am – 8pm). Over 10,000 masquerades will participate as they strut and dance down the 3.6 km Toronto stretch in elaborate costumes, set to the vibrant Caribbean beats of the famed mas bands.

It wouldn’t be a well rounded Carnival weekend experience if you didn’t hit a  party or two… or ten! This year, over 30 Caribana-nightlife events will take place during the parade weekend alone. From Thursday, August 1st to Monday August 5th, 2024, get your drink and dance on as top North American DJ’s spin at exclusive club events, eat and dance aboard Festival Boat Cruises, check out live Soca, Calypso, dancehall, reggae and be sure to find one of several pumping street parties - sure to kick your Caribana weekend into high gear.
