The 31st annual festival brings pageantry, parties, art vendors and foods from Trinidad & Tobago, Jamaica, Guyana, Barbados and other Caribbean nations. Dancehall reggae artists Tony Matterhorn, Serani and Menace join soca stars Raymond Ramnarine and Machel Montano for an afternoon of nonstop rhythmic rapture.
