2019 is the 45th anniversary year of the event in Preston and we are planning a bigger and better event. We are supported by the Arts Council, England for our creative and artistic elements of the event but need to raise in the region of £30,000 to cover the costs of infra-structure. That is costs such as safety barriers, security and stewarding, traffic control and event management.
The event is for anyone and everyone and will consist of a procession from Moor Park, Preston from 12noon on Sunday 23 June 2019, followed by a family fun afternoon on the park. A main stage will have live performers - July Julay, Trinniboi Joocie, One Voice Community Choir and Phase One Steel Orchestra.
Caribbean foods and well International foods will be available all afternoon including traditional jerk chicken and rice, curried goat and dumplings.
A licensed bar will be on site and visitors are asked not to bring their own alcohol as this will not be allowed on to the park event site.
Childrens activities include creative stalls, insects and creatures to see and inflatables.
