If you've been wanting to travel to the Caribbean but lack the funds (have you seen airline prices lately?) or the time to do it, that's okay. Because the Caribbean is coming to Battle Creek.

Back by popular demand, the Caribbean Festival is scheduled to return to the Battle Creek area on July 16th.

What You Can Expect:

As with any festival, especially one like this, you can expect to be immersed in everything Caribbean. That includes delicious dishes from both local and regional food vendors like Jerk Your Beef, South Side Grubz, VeggZ Cafe, and Caribbean Chill and Grill just to name a few.

Along with that, crafts and lots of live music! See the group lineup below:
