Caribbean Days Festival 2022
July 23, 2022 - July 24, 2022
*** 2022 Festival Moves To Town Centre Park near Coquitlam Centre ***
BREAKING NEWS! Caribbean Days Festival returns for 2022 in a brand new location!
After a two year hiatus, Caribbean Days is back in full force this July 23rd & 24th. For the occasion, we’re unveiling our biggest move in years, as the Festival shifts from its long-time North Vancouver location to a new home: Town Centre Park at Coquitlam’s Lafarge Lake.
Town Centre Park is a fabulous multi-use recreational complex boasting Lafarge Lake, a five-hectare man-made body of water anchoring this idyllic greenspace near the heart of urban Coquitlam.
The park is situated not far from Coquitlam Town Centre, a well-known shopping destination and a hub of the city’s transportation system. The park can be reached easily via Skytrain. Simply take the Millennium Line to its terminus at Lafarge Lake-Douglas Station, and from there it’s just a few steps to the Park.
Town Centre Park is an ideal location for an outdoor festival, and indeed it plays host to a number of major events each year. Fittingly, it is also home to Percy Perry Stadium, named in honour of long-serving Coquitlam community leader and Caribbean expatriate Percy Perry.
Caribbean Days Festival is proud to make its long-awaited return with this debut event on July 23rd & 24th 2022 at Town Centre Park, 1299 Pinetree Way in Coquitlam BC.
Caribbean Days Festival is free to attend, is open to all ages, is wheelchair accessible and close to public transportation. Over the years, the Festival has grown into the largest Caribbean event on the local calendar. With tens of thousands of attendees, it is possibly the largest cultural event of its type in BC, period.
