C a r i f e t e is masquerade on the street representing a kaleidoscope of colors, cultures and artistry created through a colorful parade of costumed participants accompanied by mobile music (live, D.J’s, or Steeldrums).
The entire parade exemplifies a cultural extravaganza including the musical genre of Calypso, Soca, Reggae, Punta and Zouk; dances to match the music & cuisine from the Islands of the Caribbean and the Americas.

It entertains and excites — from the brilliant and dazzling costumes that add a myriad of colors to the city, to the pulsating rhythms of the steel bands, soca and calypso music – drawing people of all ages. Chicagoans and visitors alike to witness this cultural extravaganza.

Themes represent fictitious characters brought to life, which represents the domains of history, nature or fantasy.

C a r i f e t e takes place on the Midway Plaisance in Hyde Park. (5900 S. between Cottage Grove & Stony Island) and welcome everyone and anyone who is interested in joining and sharing in our culture.
