The Caribbean Festival of Arts (CARIFESTA) is a multi-disciplinary, mega event that showcases the cultural expressions of artists in 30 countries in the Caribbean region. It was initiated by the Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community in 1972 to celebrate the arts, foster a vision of Caribbean unity and to positively advance Caribbean culture Regionally and internationally. In its original design, the Festival was to be held every four years. To date, ten editions of CARIFESTA have been staged in eight countries, the most recent being held in Suriname in 2012. The responsibility for staging CARIFESTA has traditionally been shared among the Caribbean Community, the Secretariat and the host country.
