Cambridge Carnival

Sunday 9/09, 12pm - 6pm, Kendall Square, Cambridge

Cambridge Carnival is a colorful and festive celebration rooted in African traditions. This free festival is celebrating 26 years this year and is considered a Cambridge Institution, and is the largest festival in Cambridge with thousands of attendees. The highlight of the festival is a grand costume parade accompanied by rich rhythmic musicality promoting all types of cultures. Participants can be seen as revelers masquerading through the streets in dazzling handmade costumes, dancing to the beat of the Carnival. The festival is also an opportunity to celebrate Cambridge’s diversity, enjoy international foods, and purchase multicultural crafts from around the world!

There will also be activities for kids, KidsFest! Cambridge Carnival KidsFest is a hands-on interactive activity zone for children of all ages. Join us for stilt walking demos, story telling, face painting, balloon art, and arts and crafts activities. Most of the activities are free. KidsFest is located on Ames Street between Main Street and Amhearst Street in Kendall Square.
