Trinidad and Tobago Society of BC

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.

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.
