CTO’s Caribbean Fair, June 2 NYC

A day-long festival of delicious food, fun, flair and island romance, the Caribbean Fair - a Cultural Exposition in the Park will inspire the spirit and tantalise the palate when it takes place on Wednesday, June 2 during the Caribbean Tourism Organisation’s
(CTO) annual Caribbean Week in New York.  The event, slated for Bowling Green Park, the oldest park in New York City, will welcome thousands of consumers from 10 am - 7 pm.

Throughout the day, consumers can travel the region by visiting individual country booths for food samples, arts and crafts, and a variety of cultural items/presentations.

Other highlights include the delivery of proclamations officially declaring Caribbean Week, a special food court with traditional cuisine from various Caribbean countries, two concerts featuring Caribbean rhythms, a colorful fashion show, and a romantic, live ‘Do It Caribbean’ wedding in conjunction with the Condé Nast Bridal Group.

Additionally, consumers will have the option to purchase special holiday packages on-site (packages are only available for sale during Caribbean Week).

“Caribbean culture is rich in style and romance and vibrant in everything from food to music to fashion.  We’re confident that the Caribbean Fair cultural extravaganza will do an excellent job showcasing this side of the tropics to the public,” said Hugh Riley, director of marketing for the Americas, CTO.
