Parts of Massachusetts Avenue and Main Street will be closed this Sunday as the Cambridge Carnival returns to Kendall Square with music, food and a costume parade that draws thousands of people every year.
The free, Carribbean-style carnival will be held from noon to 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 8, in Kendall Square and the grand costume parade will start at 12:30 p.m. on River Street before making its way down Massachusetts Avenue to Main Street in Kendall Square.
The festival is in its 21st year and celebrates diversity with the parade, ethnic foods, music, DJs and a Kidsfest. This year’s carnival theme is “Cambridge Strong.”
A Food Truck Zone will be located in front of the Marriot/Kendall Square MBTA exit and the Kidsfest will be located on the MIT side of Ames Street near Main Street.
