Mission Statement

The mission of Carifest is to strengthen and to educate the greater community at large about Caribbean culture and current issues impacting countries in the Caribbean through the organization of cultural events. We strive to create a unified and culturally rooted Caribbean community within the Twin Cities, while promoting philanthropy among local businesses. Our vision is to bring to light the heritage of our underrepresented community while creating a platform for members to engage and share their culture with other communities.


Twin Cities Carifest began as a grass-roots celebration of the Caribbean cultural heritage in 1994. Now celebrating our 25th anniversary, Carifest has grown to provide festival-goers of all ages and backgrounds the ultimate arts fusion experience featuring: colorful Caribbean flair, danceable live calypso and reggae beats, vibrant parade costumes and more. Each element is as diverse as the islands themselves. We are a 501(c)3 organization that manages all aspects of Carifest, the annual celebration of Caribbean arts and culture in Minnesota. We are a small group of volunteers who in addition to our regular jobs, contribute our time and efforts to raise funds, seek and book performers, secure licenses and manage just about every little detail to put on this annual
