Free admission
Mortensen Riverfront Plaza

Authentic Caribbean cuisine, cool island beverages, spectacular costumes and dance, and island rhythms bring a festive Caribbean atmosphere to the riverfront, during a free, day-long, family-friendly festival. 

Riverfront and CAYASCO team up to offer a full day of music, dance, Caribbean games, and fun children’s activities. For some, the highlight of the day is the Carnival Parade and the dazzling costumes. For others, it’s getting a taste of fiery jerk chicken.
