Hot Date: Flamboyant Caribbean Fun

JULY 17 TO AUGUST 5 Don your most colourful costume and limber up to dance to the infectious calypso and soca rhythms of the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Toronto. The countdown to the famous parade (taking place August 4) begins on July 17 when Nathan Phillips Square hosts the festival’s official launch party, featuring island-inspired food, art displays, and live music and dance. July 21 has two events to enjoy—the junior carnival at Downsview Park and a Canada-versus-Jamaica rugby match at Lamport Stadium—while July 31 brings a calypso all-stars showcase to Harbourfront Centre.
