Now that the Trinidad Carnival is over, Toronto Mas camps are getting ready to kick-off the 2023 Toronto Caribbean Carnival season. In a matter of weeks there will be late night costume launches and the opening of mas camps and pan alleys.

E.P.I.C Carnival will be the first of the bands competing in this year’s summer parade to hold a costume launch.  It will happen at the 400-person Grand Luxe Event Boutique on Bayview Avenue in North York on Friday March 31st.  

“ Yes, we are coming out first this year and we can’t wait to kick off the season some EPIC costumes,” said Band leader Jerrol Augustine (aka “Stretch”). “Passion is the theme for 2023 and our 13 sections will tell a story of each of the designers’ passion!”

The Mas Band has not yet revealed its costumes yet. However, it is already pre-registering revellers who wish to play mas with EPIC this year. 

On our website you can connect to buy $30 band launch tickets, pre-register to secure a spot for your favourite costume, apply for support positions and sponsorship opportunities,” Stretch told the Caribbean Camera yesterday. 

The website also has ticket information for the opening launch party.

E.P.I.C. Carnival is part of the Durham Mas and Recreational Club. It is a non-for-profit organization and has participated in the  Toronto Caribbean Carnival for many years. .  Our diverse team of management, section leaders, volunteers and sponsors work together to bring you an EPIC cultural experience. We encourage everyone to participate in the carnival season.
