The 2024 Toronto Caribbean Carnival will take place on Saturday, August 3rd , 2024! This year, we will be joining EPIC Carnival, in their Wild Thoughts section.

Please fill out this form to submit your order details for approval. CUPE Ontario, CUPE Local 905, and CUPE Local 4400 are partnering with EPIC Carnival, a growing non-for profit organization with a passionate and creative team who shares a goal of integrating Caribbean culture into our multicultural community.

One form for each member and respective email address will be approved. Once approved, your information will be forwarded to EPIC Carnival, and you will be given a costume receipt through a carnival costume management platform called PlayMas. Once your PlayMas account is created, you can enter to see details of the costumes and upgrade costume options. This system will also be used for the distribution of costumes on your pick up day.

Your CUPE Ontario-sponsored package includes a backline costume, wristband for entry to the parade, beverages on the parade route, as well as breakfast and lunch on the road. You are welcome to purchase upgrades if you wish to add to your costume.  Closer to the event, the section designers will reach out with details for warehouse location, fitting/sizing if required, pick up, and parade day instructions.


Thank you for your interest in supporting the CUPE Ontario Racial Justice Committee and their efforts to celebrate Carnival in Toronto. Due to limited space for the EPIC Carnival costume sign-up, we are no longer accepting applications.

We are sponsoring CUPE Ontario members only and are currently going through a verification process of all applications. When your application is approved, it will be sent to EPIC Carnival and someone will be in touch with you.

Thank you for your support!
