“One love, One heart… Let’s get together and feel all right” – Bob Marley
With this theme in mind the Maple Ridge Caribbean Festival is celebrating a milestone event this year!
Due to its overwhelming popularity and continued growth, the festival has outgrown its current location in downtown Maple Ridge and is relocating!
The 15th annual Maple Ridge Caribbean Festival will take place August 1 & 2, 2015 at the Maple Ridge Fairgrounds.
The festival will feature 2 large stages with continuous music provided by 15 live bands from the Lower Mainland’s Caribbean community, featuring Reggae, Calypso, Salsa and Soca music.
Over 100 entertainers will showcase the music and culture of their islands.
And to really celebrate this special 15th anniversary, the Maple Ridge Caribbean Festival proudly presents a special musical tribute to the EAGLES on Saturday night with a 2 hour concert featuring “Hotel California”, one of the world’s most accomplished Eagles tribute productions.
In addition to the music, make sure you enhance the experience by visiting:
- Our wide variety of food vendors, offering authentic Caribbean foods from Jerk chicken to curried goat.
- 60-70 street vendors displaying their goods at the Caribbean open air market.
- A large kid zone with rides, face painting and a number of other activities planned for our small festival goers.
This great family event is free and has attracted up to 18000 festival patrons last year and has become one of the favorite summer festivals in the lower mainland.
“Let’s get together and feel alright” this August long weekend to celebrate Multiculturalism with the Music and Foods of the Caribbean Islands.
One Love, One Heart.
