The Annual Ethnik Festival of Arts and Culture is the premier, all-inclusive flagship festival of Ethnik Festivals Association.

Members of the Afro-Canadian/ Caribbean communities come together to celebrate diversity, inclusivity and share their vibrant cultural traditions with other communities from across Canada. Our goal is to promote leadership, inform and inspire younger generations to express genuine versions of themselves through the lens of Afro-Canadian and many other world art traditions.
