The Carifest Parade is a street parade that depicts that splendour and revelry for Caribbean masquerade (mas). Various Mas Bands have an opportunity to display their costumes while engaging Calgary’s community to experience a taste of what “Playing Mas” is all about. The parade begins at Eau Clare Market on the concrete pad behind the Barley Mill, travels along 3rd Street SW to Stephen/8th Avenue, then along Stephen/8th Avenue to Shaw Millennium Park where the Mas Bands cross the main stage.
The Sunshine Fest is the outdoor park event that is the climax to the Carifest festivities.
