Festivals & Parades

Crown Heights

[Update, 8/30/2021: The 2021 parade has been canceled and will look to return in September 2022.] The West Indian American Day Carnival takes over the City with an all-day party and parade that celebrates the culture of New York City’s Caribbean community. More than 1 million people join in the festivities as the parade, with its elaborate costumes and floats, winds along Brooklyn’s Eastern Parkway. Vendors along the route sell food, art and souvenirs from islands throughout the Caribbean, while the sounds of reggaeton and calypso fill the air.
