PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – CARIFESTA, which is the largest cultural and artistic event in the Caribbean, has fused all forms of expression of Latin America and the Caribbean since 1972.

As a result, it has become a major multicultural and international event that increasingly attracts countries from other continents.

The Caribbean is a meeting place for people around the world, a witness of the crossroad of nations, of different migrations by will or force, of life invented a thousand times, shaped through the fusion of different cultures.

CARIFESTA celebrates diversity and similarity; talent and brotherhood. It gives artists the opportunity to discuss, share experiences, learn from one another and share their knowledge and traditions.

All men and women are alike in their beauty. Armed with this strong belief, Haiti opens its doors to welcome the Caribbean and the world from August 21st to August 30th, 2015.

CARIFESTA XII activities will be held in five (5) cities across the island: Port-au-Prince, Jacmel, Cap-Haitian, Gonaives, and Cayes.
All disciplines will be featured: dance, cuisine, fashion, cinema, visual arts, literature, music, theater, arts and crafts.

CARICOM
