About this Event

The Grenada Day Festival is an annual summer event which celebrates the essence of Grenada and its sister islands; Carriacou and Petite Martinique. 10,000+ attendees visit Grenada Day in Toronto for a well-rounded taste of all things Grenada. Welcoming members of the Grenadian diaspora and friends of Grenada from both the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and abroad to experience the Spice Isle’s flavor.

Enjoy activities and performances for the family including karaoke, big Drum dancing, maypole dancing, and musical performances from local and international Grenadian artists.

The day’s event includes cultural performances by local and international artists, dance, activities for children, arts/ crafts, a variety of vendors, music, and most notably; Grenada’s delicious signature dishes. Grenada is known for its national dish, “Oil Down”, and its most reliable economic producer, the nutmeg which is the reason Grenada is known as the Isle of Spice.

Grenada Day Festival was established in 2006 in Toronto, Canada, is organized by the Grenada Day Cultural Association, and managed by the festival’s committee. The Grenada Day Festival was created by the Spice Isle Association with the inclusion of various members from other Grenadian Associations in and around the GTA. The festival operates under the distinguished patronage of the Consulate General of Grenada to Canada and is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Government of Grenada.
