Toronto Caribbean Carnival postpones Carnival Flavours

Carnival Flavours, the closing event of the Toronto Caribbean Carnival, has been moved to late August.

A tweet by the festival’s Twitter account on Sunday said refunds will be issued to anyone who bought tickets, promising more details to come.

Carnival Flavours was scheduled to take place Sunday afternoon at Stanley Barracks at Hotel X. The event will now take place Aug. 27 and 28 at Yonge-Dundas Square, to celebrate Trinidad and Tobago’s 60th Independence Day, which is on Aug. 31.

The event is meant to showcase Caribbean food and drink in a final burst of festivities to end the Carnival, which attracted thousands to Toronto’s waterfront earlier this weekend. Highlights of the Carnival have included a rainbow of colourful costumes, live music and 10,000 masqueraders along Lake Shore Boulevard.

The annual festival marked its return this weekend after a two-year pause due to the pandemic.
