Caribbean Cultural Fest is the largest annual celebration of U.S.V.I. culture and pride in North America and is also a mecca of eastern Caribbean music.

The event will take place from 2-7 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 1, in Jackie Robinson Park, located at 85 Bradhurst Avenue on 145th Street in Harlem, NYC. Caribbean Cultural Fest. 2019 is proudly sponsored by: U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism and WSTA Radio (1340 a.m.), and NYC sponsors: Virgin Islanders United Inc., Teddy Volkswagen, Best Deal Car Service, McCall’s Bronxwood Funeral Home, B.J.’s Wholesale Club, The Avril Show (93.5 F.M.) and Rodman and Campbell PC Attorneys at Law.

The fest will pay homage to classic calypso, reggae and soca music. Janet Parris, president of Virgin Islanders United Inc., said, “We want all fans of great Caribbean music to come and visit our show in Harlem to get a taste of the music, food, and culture of the Caribbean and the V.I., and then immediately make plans to visit St. Croix for the Crucian Festival, and enjoy Carnival and the Christmas holidays in St. Croix.”
