Cambridge Carnival International is a colorful and festive celebration that is rooted in African traditions.

Carnival secretly allowed public communication and cultural bonding for the Afro-Caribbean cultures from as far back as the 1600s.

The festival, now a Cambridge institution, attracts thousands of people and is the largest festival in Cambridge.

The highlight of the festival is a grand costume parade accompanied by rich rhythmic musicality promoting all types of cultures that can be seen as revelers masquerade through the streets of Cambridge in dazzling handmade costumes, dancing to the beat of Carnival.
