WIADCA 53rd Annual New York Carnival (Virtual): Back to Love
West Indian American Day Carnival Association (WIADCA) celebrates a historical 53rd milestone, taking it back to how it all began – Back to Love. This was the premise in which a group of Caribbean migrants (Lionel Rufus Gorin, Camilla Gorin Frank, Carlos Lezama, Allister Yarde, Mildred Scott, Polly Phillips, Caldera Caraballo, Lester Isaacs and others) came together to form WIADCA – an anchor institution that produces North America’s largest Caribbean cultural festival along with several year-round impactful community programs (YouthFest formerly ‘Stay in School’ originally conceptualized by Marta Vega Founder of Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute and Junior Carnival Parade created by longtime WIADCA member Joyce Quamina).
