Here are some photos by TQ Griffith of Saturday’s Annual New Haven Caribbean Heritage Festival on the New Haven Green.
More info about the Festival from the New Haven Caribbean Heritage Festival Website:
Caribbean Nationals have been a part of the rich culture of New Haven since the 1900’s or longer. In 2014 under the Distinguished Patronage of Hon. Mayor Toni N. Harp and the City of New Haven we were invited to showcase our rich culture at City Hall. We had approximately 200 people sharing, learning, reminiscing, tasting and just overall having a “gran ole time”.
The celebration has turned into an annual festival named The New Haven Caribbean Heritage Festival to enjoy performances, delicious Caribbean cuisine, beautiful displays of islands and colorful costumes. This year will be the 8th anniversary of the festival, aptly hosted in June which is dubbed National Caribbean American Heritage Month.
