Do you want to experience and celebrate the West Indies… in Montreal? The Foire afroantillaise returns for its fourth edition to Rivière-des-Prairies for a weekend, August 27 and 28, after a two-year forced break due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is a happy, free family get-together before the start of the school year.
The event will start again smoothly, indicates the CACOH organization which oversees it. Although there are no variety shows on the program this year, the public market and around fifty exhibitors (food, beauty, publishing, fashion and services) are back. Fun activities for the whole family (including inflatable games) will take place to the rhythm of DJ hubs.
The CACOH invites the population to celebrate the borough’s black community in chorus at Place Paul-Déjean — precisely dedicated to an iconic leader of the Haitian community — in Armand-Bombardier Park. Bringing people together, the Afro-Caribbean Fair contributes to nurturing and strengthening social ties in the neighborhood.
Note that the CACOH group supports the social, political and economic development of Rivière-des-Prairies in order to help citizens of Haitian origin to meet the challenges they face.
Armand-Bombardier Park, Place Paul-Déjean
Saturday August 27, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sunday, August 28, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
