Promotion 24/7 with CaribPR


News Americas Now, Thursday, August 7 2014: The sounds of the Caribbean complimented by a market place of Caribbean Fashions and Exotic Cuisine returns to the 28th Annual Caribbean Festival, set for Columbus Boulevard and Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, on Sunday, August 17, 2014 from noon to 8 p.m.

Now in its 28th year, this free festival of Caribbean culture, music, and food is one of celebration of the many festivals in the PECO Multicultural Series and part of the 2014 summer season at Penn’s Landing, presented by PECO.

The 2014 Caribbean Festival is proud to announce its musical entertainment line-up highlighting the international known Image Band from Washington, D.C.  The event will also feature gospel, spoken word and dancing as well as a Marcus Garvey Salute in honor of the Marcus Mosiah Garvey’s 127th Birthday, which falls on August 17th.

Sistah Mafalda & the Kuumba Dancers will present a toe-tapping, hand-clapping and head-nodding drumming and dance performance; you will be on your feet with the FullJoy Band, and you will be dancing the Salsa by the De Tierra Caliente Latin Band. David Watkis will stir your soul with spoken words; Faith & Favor Band will certainly uplift you with some soul-searching Gospel; not to mention CBC Mime Ministry, a group of young children’s act.

Of course this line-up would not be complete if some positive Reggae Vibration by Ras Professor himself and Dancehall rockaway presented by Mr. Rob Diesel. J West Project will present cool Jazz for your listening pleasure. MC for this special day will be DJ Scripture who opens up with Devotional Remarks and Saxaphonist Kenny Sykes to follow with the National Anthem.

As always, the event will also feature the ever-popular steel drum band, Philly PanStars, along with a Caribbean Culture booth – Tings Caribbean – where one can feel, touch and sample “Tings” from the islands. A Caribbean Children’s Village – “Pickney Kannah” – will also be featured.
