The Miramar Afro-Carib Festival is a celebration of the blended cultures that evolved through the diaspora of enslaved Africans initially taken to the colonial Caribbean between the 15th – 19th centuries through the Atlantic Slave Trade. Through a shared bond rooted in African origins and the resulting blended cultures manifested in music, cuisine and art, the Afro-Caribbean experience has impacted all the English, French and Spanish-speaking Caribbean nations and territories in which these descendants now call home.
We invite you to celebrate this history, our history, Black History at the Miramar Afro-Carib Festival.
