A Huge Caribbean Street Food, Rum and Culture Festival Is Coming To Montreal Next Month
By Kelsey Marie
Summers in Montreal are filled with delicious food festivals — the latest being A Taste of the Caribbean.
This Caribbean street food, rum, and culture festival will be celebrating its 20th year at the Clock Tower Quay in Montreal’s Old Port.
From Thursday, July 11th until Sunday, July 14th, there will be Caribbean food, rum tastings, and live music.
The rum tastings will include mixology demonstrations — giving you the opportunity to learn how to mix cocktails just like bartenders do in the Caribbean.
This year’s focus will be on dance and you’ll be able to learn a variety of dances while also learning about how African and colonial had influences on Caribbean dance styles.
You can attend one of the daily dance workshops or view the dance performances from Caribbean dancers who live in Montreal.
With over 15 food vendors, you’ll be able to satisfy your cravings of jerk chicken, curry goat, roti and more.
This is an event for both adults and children — with a soccer zone and kid-friendly activities.
Best of all, this event is free to attend with free activities — just bring money for food and drinks.
The event will be open from 12P until 11P every day from July 11th until July 14th.
