A new festival is planned for Windsor this summer.

The Windsor International Diaspora African Festival, also known as WIDAFEST is similar to Caribana held annually in Toronto. WIDAFEST will capture the vibrancy and excitement through music, food and cultural experiences. The event will celebrate the richness of Windsor’s Black history and culture.

The festival will include local and regional food, merchandise and artistic vendors displaying art exhibits and crafts, along with musical stage presentations. A traditional Caribbean-style parade, similar to the one hosted annually in Toronto, will take place on Riverside Drive East and will feature floats, dancers and fashion displays.

Additionally, workshops highlighting the Black and African Community, business and socio-economic topics and opportunities will be conducted at various city locations throughout the weekend, featuring local, regional, national and international speakers and organizations.

It is planned for the Riverfront Festival Plaza from Friday, July 28th, to Sunday, July 30th, 2023.
