Trinbago Toronto is a celebration of the culture, history, and impact of the Trinidad & Tobago diaspora in Canada. The event is under the auspices of the Trinidad & Tobago Consulate in Toronto, co-presented by Tourism Trinidad Limited and the Tobago Tourism Agency Ltd., and in support of the Caribbean Scholarship Foundation. We are also excited to have the support of the Toronto Caribbean Carnival.

Trip to Trinidad & Tobago?
Known as the ‘Greatest Show on Earth’, Trinidad and Tobago’s Carnival is officially celebrated on the Monday and Tuesday before Ash Wednesday every year. The Carnival festivities start just after Christmas and continue until Ash Wednesday, with dozens of high energy parties and premier cultural competitions.
A long, gorgeous stretch of coastline in the iconic fishing village of Buccoo, Buccoo Bay is fringed by mangroves and other thick foliage that provide excellent shade.
Serviced by lifeguards, the calm waters are usually clear and offer ideal swimming and snorkeling conditions. If you time it perfectly, you may be able to help local fishermen pull in the seine with their catch or witness the horses prancing through the water during daily horseback riding tours.
The beach frequently hosts bonfires and reef tours and its close proximity to the Buccoo Integrated Facility grants visitors access to restrooms and a host of restaurants and shops.
Trinidad is home to the world’s largest commercial deposits of natural asphalt, which is mined and exported for use in manufacturing and road paving. The La Brea Pitch Lake is located on Trinidad’s southwestern coast and is recognized as the Eighth Wonder of the World. Visitors to the Lake can soak in the natural sulphur pools, enjoy the bountiful birdlife, or just stand inspired by one of nature’s true wonders. The Pitch Lake holds approximately 10 million tonnes of aspha.
The annual Great Race begins in Trinidad and ends in Tobago. Join the excitement as thousands of spectators congregate at various vantage points to see the high powered speed boats go head-to-head throughout the 85 mile crossing.
