Every July of the year, BC is treated to a festival of drums, music, fun, dance, good food…. flamboyant costumes with plenty of exotic feathers, sequins, … called the Carribean Days Festival. All thanks to the volunteers at the Trinidad & Tobago Cultural Society of BC, the non-profit organization that organizes the Caribbean Days Festival in order to raise awareness of Caribbean culture in BC.
The Trinidad and Tobago Cultural Society of BC (TTCS) is dedicated to providing cross cultural understanding, acceptance and interaction between peoples of diverse nationalities and heritage through their art, their music and their respective talents and abilities.
The Trinidad & Tobago Cultural Society brings fun, dance and music to the Vancouverites, but more than that, TTCS is very much engaged in community and charitable projects. Over the years TTCS has sponsored a number of social and cultural initiatives, such as Senior’s outings, Youth development workshops, and provision of bursaries, aid, computers and supplies to schools, hospitals and other beneficiaries in Trinidad & Tobago and the Caribbean.
Membership to the Trinidad and Tobago Cultural Society of BC is open to people of all nationalities, color and creed similar to what one would expect to find in the makeup of the people of Trinidad & Tobago, and in many of the other islands of the Caribbean. Visit their website by clicking here.
