A vibrant, family friendly celebration of Caribbean culture featuring live bands, food and merchandise vendors and a colorful costume parade.

Central Alabama Caribbean American Organization is pleased to host our annual Caribbean Food and Music Festival on June 10th in DeBardeleben Park, Bessemer, Alabama. The event which begins at 11:00am and runs until 9:00pm is free, family-friendly, and open to the public and features live bands, interactive dancing, food and merchandise vendors, and a colorful costume parade.

The route for the parade which kicks off at noon from the Bessemer Hall of History, winds down Alabama Avenue to 19th Street, then right on 3rd Avenue, and ending in DeBardeleben Park.

Entertainment in the park features live Reggae bands, a live Steel Band, dance groups, and several surprise guest artists.

This project has been made possible by a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
