TAMPA, Fla. — After a two-year layoff, the Tampa Bay Caribbean Heritage Festival will return in a big beautiful way this Saturday to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

Presented by CANDO, the Fest will be held at the University Area Community Park from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Tickets are $12 online and $15 at the door. Kids are free. (BUY TICKETS HERE.)

The musical lineup is packed, including R&B-soca singer J'Nelle, Jah Movement, Tropigroove and more. There will also be a lot of food, a lot of dancing, and fun for the whole family.

Festival organizer Kay Joseph said this year's event will show a Caribbean community in the Tampa Bay area that's full of love, support and unity.

"We are one Caribbean nation, and we're coming out in full force," she said.
