2011 Theme for Carivibe Parade

Previous Carnival Celebration in Ottawa
2011 theme "Mas is Mas". Choosing such a broad theme was done so that we can be inclusive of all and not restricting anyone to the vision of the design. We have found that although people may have heard of Carnival they are not necessarily sure how are if they can participate. So as our mandate states we are here to help in the education and promotion of a strong Caribbean cultural heritage with a twist, called Carnival.

As the Caribbean Diaspora community living in one of the most multicultural countries in the world we have recognized that  the opportunity to be a part of the true essence of Carnival is to facilitate individuals or groups the ability to a dynamic way of self-expression by facilitating the wearing of traditional pieces that are representative of their cultural heritage or form of Carnival. 

Therefore we are asking members of the Ottawa community that celebrate Carnival/Carnavale/Fiesta/Karneval or whatever you may call it, as a part of their cultural heritage to join us on June 18, 2011 in a show of community spirit and celebration of our similarities.
