CRAFT Live Afro-Caribbean Waterfront Fete is August 26, 2023!

August is African, Caribbean, and Black Canadian Appreciation Month in Oakville. It’s an occasion to recognize and celebrate the vast contributions and influences of African, Caribbean and Black Canadians in shaping our community, culture and economy.

We are thrilled to welcome and sponsor the CRAFT Live Afro-Caribbean Waterfront Fete on Saturday, August 26 from 3pm to 11pm in Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park for a celebration of musical performances and vendors. Produced by BLing Events International, the event will showcase performances by various African, Caribbean and Black Canadian artists and feature live Soca, Calypso, Reggae, Steelpan, R&B, Afro Beats, Disco, Jazz, Blues, and Funk & Soul music.

Come to dance, sing and celebrate the cultural and artistic achievements of African, Caribbean and Black Canadians. It’s a free, fun-packed, inclusive event that the whole family will enjoy!

The CRAFT Live Afro-Caribbean Waterfront Fete is part of the 65+ days of activations you’ll see in Bronte through the BIA’s Community Investment program.
