Grande Parade 2022 @ Exhibition Place & Lakeshore Boulevard

On April 8th, 2020, the festival management committee canceled year’s parade on Lakeshore. They are still looking to host other events in a more traditional format. operates independently from the parade organizers as Caribana is a weekend-long cultural celebration with dozens of events beyond the parade. We facilitate hotel packages and events throughout Caribana weekend. While the official parade has been canceled, there is still a multitude of events that are still scheduled to take place.
