For three weeks, Toronto celebrates the best of Caribbean culture with lively music, delicious food and colourful dance. Highlight events include a special outdoor Pan Concert at Fort York, the annual King and Queen contest, Pan Alive, a day-long Carnival Island Festival, the highly-anticipated Carnival Gala, Junior Carnival Parade and, of course, the Grand Parade.

Major changes regarding the parade were announced; including a new route that will enter and exit from the CNE grounds and the vow to keep non-masqueraders from “storming” mas’ bands on the road.

This year, revelers can look forward to an even grander spectacle as thousands of Caribbean and South American visitors converge upon the city for the 2015 Pan Am Games (which run concurrently with carnival events)!
