Cambridge Carnival International 2022

Cambridge Carnival is back and better than ever on Sunday, September 11 at University Park Commons. Honoring years of diversity and celebration, Cambridge Carnival provides a fun and festive atmosphere rooted in Caribbean and African traditions. The free festival showcases cultural performances, arts and crafts vendors, steel pan performances, a variety of food selections plus an inspired production of cultural dance and music through a costume parade. The carnival attracts people from all over and is known to be the largest event in Cambridge.

The parade kicks off at 12:30 p.m. on Blackstone Street and River Street, continues on Massachusetts Avenue, turns right onto Sidney Street and ends at the University Park Commons. In addition to live music, there will be a KidsFest area with free, interactive activities. For more information on the event visit Cambridge Carnival's website.
