Access to all performances at the CARIFESTA XIV Grand Market at the Grand Stand, Queens Park Savannah, where you can shop, dine and lime is FREE.

All CARIFESTA XIV events at our performance spaces nationwide are FREE, but require tickets for entry. Please note the following very carefully:

  • Tickets are available three (3) hours before the start of the show at the scheduled venue.
  • Doors open one (1) hour before the scheduled showtime.
  • Each person is entitled to one (1) ticket based on availability upon distribution.
  • ALL ticket holders are urged to be seated 30 minutes before the start of the show.

FREE tickets for the opening and closing ceremonies will be available from August 13th, 2019 at the CARIFESTA XIV Secretariat, Corner Jerningham Avenue, and Queens Park Savannah, Port of Spain.

Note: The CARIFESTA ticketing policy is based on the Ministry’s considerable experience with free ticketed events. Using tickets for free events allows for controlled seating, data collection and avoids chaos. Releasing tickets early has often led to hoarding and it severely affects the availability of tickets to the widest cross section of persons in a fair manner. Persons wishing to attend shows can choose to get to the venue an hour in advance, pick up a ticket and proceed to be seated. However, if they so choose, they can collect their ticket, or have one collected for them earlier and secure their seat in anticipation of their arrival at the event.

Tickets for Island Beats, the Super Concert of CARIFESTA XIV, can be purchased at, at all NLCB outlets and Cache’s Nationwide.
