The annual Cambridge Carnival International festival uses the Trinidad and Tobago model to bring together Cambridge’s diverse community for a spectacular annual costume parade and celebration. This year’s festival features five entertainment zones in Kendall Square: two live music stages, KidsFest zone, and two DJ zones. The Cambridge Carnival has come a long way since 1992 from a small street fair at University Park, to now one of the most spectacular events in the Greater Boston area. Cambridge Carnival is one of twenty-four North American Caribbean-style Carnivals that Carnival followers seek out. It is not only an event that the diverse Cambridge community can be proud of; it also recognized internationally and has attracted bus-loads of out-of-towners from as far a field as New England, Baltimore, New York, and Maine, as well as visitors from overseas. The event attracts more than 100,000 people.
