Afropan is proud to have won this competition 28 times.
Snowflakes on Steel
Steelpan Concert -January 2020
Formerly known as Caribana, this parade takes place every summer on the Saturday of the Simcoe Long weekend in Toronto. And of course, Afropan is always there to greet the crowds on Lakeshore with the sweet sounds of steel. Both Players and Official Supporters are provided with free food and drinks on the road. So make sure to sign up for membership if you want to chip down the road with us.
Snowflakes is an annual concert held every January and put on by The PAN Arts Network. Here you will see Afropan, along with some of the other top bands in the city put on concert performances containing music of all genres, including Calypso, Rock, Jazz, Classical, Funk, R&B, and Gospel. A fun evening of Pan where you are bound to hear something you may never had expected to hear on pan.
