The West Indian Day Parade is one of NYC's most anticipated events of the year. Celebrate all things Caribbean with calypso bands, colorful costumes and more.
Celebrate Brooklyn’s West Indian/Caribbean diaspora and its carnival tradition at this annual fest. Expect a boisterous J’Ouvert pre-party to kick things off at sunrise, then a massive march featuring vibrant steel-pan and calypso bands, and larger-than-life colorful costumes, along with food vendors shelling out authentic island fare like jerk, roti and doubles.
