The CARIFEST PARADE [ROUTE] starts at 11AM at Olympic Plaza with hundreds of masqueraders dancing to the rhythms of Caribbean Music down Stephen Avenue to Shaw Millennium Park. Later in the evening from 2PM to 8PM the SUNSHINE FESTIVAL will take place at Shaw Millennium Park with live performances by Alison Hinds and Patrice Roberts!
On Saturday, August 17, we’re excited to bring Barbados’ foremost female Soca star, Alison Hinds. Alison has, for over two decades, brought timeless hits that have cemented her as one of Soca music’s greatest contributors!
Patrice Roberts has been singing for over a decade, beginning in her earlier years with Machel Montano and the HD family. Many of her songs have dominated the Soca scene, and her energetic performances can entertain any crowd!
