The Caribbean Festival “CaribFest” encourages and welcomes interest from those in the media. The 11th Annual Caribbean Festival “CaribFest” is scheduled for August 20, 2016 at Town Point Park in downtown Norfolk, Virginia and promises to be the best Festival yet.

Since 2006, the CaribFest Festival has been presenting music of Caribbean heritage that is seldom heard outside the Festival.  The CaribFest Festival features outstanding international and local artists and is another vehicle for us to engage the public and to introduce them to a unique aspect of our culture they may not be aware of.  Through this Festival, we not only celebrate the Caribbean’s Philipp Plein Pas Cher rich culture and heritage, but we continue our mission of breaking down those barriers that separate our cultures and communities.  Besides, this music is really exciting, joyful.  I invite you all to discover and surrender to the Caribbean rhythmic sounds.

Please feel free to contact the Festival Director, Michael Forde at or 757-766-0532 with any questions or suggestions about how to better serve the media’s needs.

We look forward to seeing you and working with you this year.
