Welcome to the Maple Ridge Caribbean Festival
2016 will be another exiting year for the Maple Ridge Caribbean Festival.
Due to its overwhelming popularity and continued growth, the festival has outgrown its current location in downtown Maple Ridge and has relocated.
The 16th annual Maple Ridge Caribbean Festival will take place July 30-31, 2016 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.
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 year’s theme will be “GOOD VIBRATIONS” Beach Party with a 2 hour tribute concert to celebrate 50 years of the BEACH BOYS by the Mike Amaral’s California Beach Boy Experience from Santa Cruz CA. The festival is also hosting a Beach Volleyball Tournament and expanding the Show N’ Shine car show on Saturday. Of course the festival will feature again an incredible line up of Reggae Soca and Salsa bands with our headline band from Cuba to close the festival on Sunday night
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.
