Each year, Charleston Carifest opens with a Symposium designed to share information on the featured country. While Carnival is traditionally a time of festivities, Charleston Carifest adds an educational component to allow the community to learn more about the similarities and differences of the islands in the Caribbean.

This year our featured country is Haiti.
