Promotion 24/7 with CaribPR

News Americas, WASHINGTON, D.C., Fri. July 1, 2011: Carnival is set to wake up Baltimore next weekend as the 30th annual Caribbean Carnival Festival gets underway on July 9th.

This year, the two-day event will be held at 2801 Clifton Park on Harford Road, a move from its usual Druid Hill Park location, said festival organizer Dr. Elaine Simon of the Caribbean American Carnival Association of Baltimore.

The festivities will get underway from noon on Saturday with a costumed street parade and will return to the park on Sunday, July 10 for a day of concerts by several top Caribbean entertainers.

Admission is $5 on Saturday and $20 on Sunday.

Over the past three decades, the festival has become one of Baltimore City’s most colorful events. This year it is a part of the 2011 Showcase of Nations Ethnic Festivals, presented by Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and the Baltimore Office of Promotion & The Arts.
