CARIFESTA stands for the Caribbean Festival of Arts. It is is the regionís roving, multidisciplinary, mega arts festival which attracts a wide range of creative artists from various Caribbean and Latin American countries. CARIFESTA was the culmination of the idea that started in 1970 when participants at an Artists and Writers Convention in Guyana complained about the absence of an outlet to showcase the rich cultural heritage of the Region and at the same time give recognition to its outstanding artists and art forms.
