Come and capture the sounds, sights, and tastes of the Caribbean at the 36th annual Baltimore Caribbean Carnival parade and festival on Saturday, July 15 and Sunday, July 16, 2017.

Officially known as the Baltimore Washington One Carnival, this annual event draws thousands of spectators and participants from the Baltimore/Washington DC area and beyond.

Beginning with a Caribbean-style parade, the festivities continue with a family, fun-filled, Caribbean festival showcasing live music and entertainment, a delicious sampling of authentic Caribbean food stalls and so much more…all enclosed within Baltimore’s Lake Clifton Park.
