Cast your cares away — Caribbean Day is back at OWA for 2021!

Join us Saturday, August 7 for OWA’s 2nd annual Caribbean Day!
We’ll be dancing, jamming and casting our cares away as the soft breeze of the islands sway through Downtown OWA. Catch a glimpse of Caribbean culture right here in Foley as the sounds of the steel drums and Calypso rhythms blend effortlessly with your frosty afternoon beverage. 


Start your day with a refreshing treat! The Spice & Tea Exchange will offer complimentary brewed Mango Tango or Blue Raspberry Crush tea while supplies last between 11am and 8pm.

Catch a live art competition, arts & crafts vendors, kid’s activities and live entertainment starting at 4pm. Judging at the art competition will take place at 7:30pm on the OWA Island Stage.

We’ll also have special guests Dex Daley and JAM-X performing a unique blend of reggae, ska and Caribbean roots music incorporating the steel drum on the OWA Island starting at 4pm followed by The Defrosters at 8:30pm.
