Caribbean

WELCOME TO THE ISLANDS!

“Whenever you have a few people gathering in the Caribbean,

you have the makings of a party…”

 

Are you ready for excitement & adventure?

Step into the warmth and hospitality of West Indies culture as we transport you to many ports of call! Walk with us as we transport you, your taste buds and your sense of adventure to create lasting memories.

This year, the sandals are coming off. Dig your toes into the sand and move to the rhythm of the Saskatoon Caribbean Steel Band and the Pacesetters Orchestra from Regina. Learn about the history of steel pan which originate in Trinidad & Tobago and was the only instrument developed in the 20th century.

From the sunny land of Jamaica, you’ll be in awe of our amazing Fire eater, Prince Niah. Barbados comes to Saskatoon along with stilt walkers, (also known traditionally as Moko Jumbies), Troy and Deono. We are introducing Black Amor this year, an incredible Limbo dancer, also from beautiful Barbados. How low can you go?

We’re firing up the grill to bring you Jerk Chicken, and spicing things up at the Pepper Pot Kitchen to bring you more favorites, Curried Chicken, Beef or Chicken Roti, Beef and Vegetarian Patties.

The rumors are true, we have the best Rum Punch in the City! Also enjoy a `Jamaica-Me-Crazy`, Red Stripe, Carib or Ginger Beer at the Coconut Hut.

We also have a variety of delicious Island Drinks for the kids! The kids will be delighted with a variety of activities including face painting and crafts in the Children’s Area. Have your camera ready because you never know if you’ll get to see a live mermaid or a real live pirate!

Visit our vendors who will surely have something authentic and interesting to take home or give to someone special.

The party begins and ends at the Caribbean pavilion, so witness the Finale and join the Conga Line every evening and “Jump Up” at Carnival! Walk a mile in our sandals and experience the
Caribbean hospitality at its finest.
