The Caribbean Coalition Network of Montreal presents the highly anticipated Montreal Carimas Festival. Formerly known as Carifiesta or Carifete, this event celebrates the diversity of Caribbean culture in Montreal. This year, the program extends over an entire month, featuring various beauty contests and other activities. The vibrant Carimas street parade, taking place on July 6th, features allegorical floats and groups of musicians and dancers. It heads to Place du Canada, where the Carimas Cultural Sizzle concludes the festivities with on-stage artistic performances. The parade route follows the South Lane of René-Lévesque between Jeanne-Mance (departure) and Peel (arrival: Place du Canada).
