Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival’s King & Queen Competition Most Spectacular Show Under the Stars at Lamport Stadium
The Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival’s King and Queen competition, dubbed the Most Spectacular Show Under the Stars In North America,will be held outdoors the evening of JULY 31st.  The almost always sold-out event takes place at Lamport Stadium in downtown Toronto.
This nighttime event showcases the elaborate costumes that will be worn by the Kings and Queens in the Grand Parade.  Kings and Queens from all of the parade Mas Camps will wear picturesque and oversized costumes (some over 10 metres tall and 12 metres wide) and will perform in the stadium as they vie for top honours at this year’s festival.
Doors open at 4:30 p.m. for the outdoor show.  From 5:00 p.m.- 7:00 p.m. there will be a pre-show program with Mas, Calypso and Steel Pan performances. At 7:00 p.m. the show will officially begin. The crowning of the King and Queen and the presentation of the Ontario Science Centre Innovation Award will take place at approximately11:30 p.m. as part of a party-style jump up.
This marks the fifth year of the Ontario Science Centre Innovation Award that will recognize innovation in costume design at the celebration, widely known for its vibrant and dazzling costumes. The Award will shine a light on the intricate art and scientific merit of costume design by honouring the creators of these innovative masterpieces shown at the King and Queen competition.
The King and Queen Competition is considered the first big event of the Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival weekend. During the evening of Friday August 1, Pan Alive, North America’s largest steel drum orchestra competition will also be held at Lamport Stadium. OnSaturday August 2, the Grand Parade will be held along Lakeshore at Exhibition Place and on Sunday, Carnival Island will be held on the Toronto Island.
