Welcome to the new Columbus Caribbean Community Association!


We began in 2017 with the Columbus Caribbean Festival, that was founded in 2017 by husband & wife team Abba Blade & Trish Wright. 

The Caribbean islands are top vacation destinations for millions of tourists each year. Boosting the beautiful tranquility of the islands, delicious cuisine and the mesmerizing music. However, hundreds of Caribbeans migrant to Columbus, Ohio each year in search of a better life. 

We are now the Columbus Caribbean Community Association, where we will assist the Caribbean community here in Columbus with health resources, events and community engagement. 

We are excited for this new journey! 

One Love!!

Abba Blade & Trish Wright
