CAHM Opening Ceremony


Caribbean American Heritage Month Opening Ceremony 2018


Media Contacts: GCAHC [email protected]


Free event to the public celebrating 14 years of unity, heritage and culture of the thirty-five (35) Caribbean Islands.

The Caribbean American Heritage Month (CAHM) Opening Reception with a Flag Ceremony is one of the headliner events for the Caribbean community in Georgia during the month of June.  The Opening Ceremony is sponsored by Georgia Caribbean American Heritage Coalition (GCAHC). This event typically attracts about 300 persons and features approximately 35 countries representing the English, French, Spanish and Dutch speaking Caribbean through national dress displays, a taste of Caribbean cuisine and cultural entertainment.

“The Flag salute” Parade of Flags carried by the youth representing each Caribbean nation and the USA has been billed as “a major element” of the event.  Another great feature is the exhibit tables for promotional displays designed to showcase Caribbean culture and products.  Additionally, the  spectacular cultural presentations help to educate the public and highlight historic milestones such as th Independence celebrations and other important anniversaries.  Government officials from Georgia and from  the highlighted nations have participated in the celebrations over the years through speaking engagements and presenting proclamations. For over thirteen years, the City of Atlanta has sponsored this important event in the City Hall Atrium. C (55 Trinity Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia 30303) on at the beginning of June th from 3pm-6pm. This event is free and  open to the public.

GCAHC was formed in 2005 and is the leading Caribbean representative organization of the Caribbean community in the state of Georgia. According to GCAHC’s Past President, Tony Alleyne, ‘During the past eleven years, the organization has continued to make huge strides in highlighting the impact of Caribbean culture on our community. Through business forums, health fairs, mentorship programs and a number of cultural and educational programs we continue to influence those around us. We have also partnered with the Atlanta-Fulton County Public Library to sponsor several educational forums and Caribbean film festivals.’

The Opening Reception and Flag Ceremony is one of several events occuring throughout the month of June to commemorate Caribbean culture.  GCAHC has also promoted Caribbean activities being sponsored by the Atlanta Fulton Library.
