As we celebrate our 23rd year in Cambridge, we look forward to the participation of the entire Cambridge community, our neighbors in surrounding cities, and visitors from afar. Put on your dancing shoes and get ready for the best Carnival ever!
Parade starts at 12:30 pm at Blackstone Street and River Street, continues up to Massachusetts Avenue and on to Main Street, and ends in Kendall Square at Albany and Main Street. Parade times are from 12:30-3:30 pm. Carnival is Rain or Shine, just like it is in the Islands and tropics.
Cambridge Carnival is a colorful and festive celebration rooted in African traditions. This free festival, embarking on its 23rd year, is considered a Cambridge Institution, and is the largest festival in Cambridge with thousands of attendees. The highlight of the festival is a grand costume parade accompanied by rich rhythmic musicality promoting all types of cultures. Participants can be seen as revelers masquerading through the streets in dazzling handmade costumes, dancing to the beat of the Carnival. The festival is also an opportunity to celebrate Cambridge’s diversity, enjoy international foods, and purchase multicultural crafts from around the world! Hide
