An Event Steeped in Tradition


Each spring, Tampa Caribbean Festival Inc welcomes visitors from throughout the Sunshine State and the world. Guests come from near and far to enjoy exhibits, crafts, top-name entertainment and vendors, a street parade, a J'ouvert morning experience, a Steelpan Jamboree, an amalgamation of Carnival Music, MultiMedia and family with glorious atmosphere and high-stepping masquerade bands.

Our Mission

TAMPA BAY CARIBBEAN CARNIVAL-has continued to grow in popularity year after year through the preservation of the Caribbean American heritage. With multiculturism being its central focus, the festival continues to preserve and enhance the cultural and historical legacy. Further steeped in tradition, the Tampa Bay Carnival is alive with volunteer spirit, uniting people from all parts of the city, state, country and the world.


Our Vision

The events began back in 2005 when members of the newly organized Tampa Caribbean Festival Inc a 501-C3 community-oriented organization conceived the idea of an event to celebrate the beautiful Caribbean-American Cultures, governed by a board of directors from the community that annually devotes many hours to establishing policies and direction for the annual event.



This organization was founded by Anthony Devon George, a well-known Caribbean artist famous for the soca tune "If Ah Rude Ah Rude". He is the brother of soca artists IWER GEORGE and NAYA GEORGE, natives from the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago. His vision to bring the Carnival from his island came to fruition in 2005 and he has never looked back. Devon extends a welcome to all of you that are coming to our new venue the Historic Perry Harvey Sr Park for the 17th annual Tampa Bay Carnival 2022
