Steel Pans

The festival is funded through ticketing, sponsorship, and run mainly by volunteers.  The Sydney Caribbean Festival is the brain child of Hope Kidd, Managing Director of Jamaican Products the main organising and sponsorship body.  Jamaican born, Hope spent 3 years at St. Augustine, in Trinidad & Tobago, becoming the first female engineering graduate from The University of the West Indies.  Apart from believing in the importance of bringing together the community, Hope usually earmarks a percentage of the money raised to support a recognised charity.  This year 2 charities were selected. We are asking patrons to bring toiletries for donation to local charity Will2Live. A financial donation will be made to a Caribbean Red Cross.  

CARICOM Member States
