Carnival Party Bus

DiversityTalk and GreenPort are thrilled to announce the highly anticipated second annual Carnival Party Bus for the Toronto Caribbean Carnival 2023. Set to take place on July 15, 2023, from 4 pm to 12 am, this event promises to be a unique and inclusive celebration of Caribbean culture and tradition.

The Toronto Caribbean Carnival is a vibrant and culturally rich celebration that attracts millions

of people each year. With its roots tracing back to the time of enslaved Africans, Carnival emerged as an outlet for celebrating cultural identity and resilience. As Caribbean immigrants established themselves in Toronto in the 19th century, they brought the spirit of Carnival with them, showcasing their vibrant costumes, music, and culinary delights. Since then, Carnival has evolved into one of North America's most prominent and significant cultural festivals.

The Carnival Party Bus seeks to honour this rich heritage by providing guests with exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the Toronto Caribbean Carnival. Guests will have the unique opportunity to explore Mas Camps and engage in meet-and-greets with revellers, carnival costume designers, section leaders from EPIC Carnival Mas Band, and festival organizers. Additionally, the event will feature live performances by Steelpan Orchestras, highlighting the exceptional musical style of the Caribbean.

This year's Carnival Party Bus will be hosted by Ryan Chung, Producer at CBC Music, adding an extra touch of excitement to the festivities. Moreover, the event will feature the participation of 45 local entertainers, social media personalities, and influencers who will join the celebration and share their experiences on social media, amplifying the reach and impact of the event.

The event is free to attend, with locations and times to meet us at the 3 locations in Toronto will be shared for the public to meet us and get a taste of what Toronto Caribbean Carnival is like and the amazing people behind keeping the culture and vibes alive.

What sets the Carnival Party Bus apart is the fact that it is organized by prominent Black leaders

in the Canadian cannabis industry. The founders of DiversityTalk and GreenPort have united

their efforts to create an experience that celebrates Caribbean culture and heritage while actively dismantling the stigma surrounding cannabis. This event represents an unprecedented opportunity for Toronto community members, particularly those impacted by the war on drugs, to come together and celebrate, all within an event organized by founders in the cannabis industry. It serves as a powerful symbol of progress, acknowledging the historical injustices where cannabis was once used to target and incarcerate members of the community. Now, it provides a platform for celebration, unity, and healing during the vibrant carnival celebration.

"We are thrilled to be a part of this historic event," said Vivianne Wilson, Founder of GreenPort.

"The Carnival Party Bus not only celebrates Caribbean culture but also signifies a significant

milestone in the Canadian cannabis space, one of unity, healing and celebration. We are proud

to collaborate with DiversityTalk to bring this event to life."
