The GCACC (Greater Caribbean American Cultural Coalition) is an umbrella organization serving the Caribbean people and other members of the community, by bringing together the various Caribbean countries and Islands, and their rich cultural heritage.
Caribbean Culture is a diverse and rich cultural blend of many original cultures from all corners of the globe. The Caribbean people have struggled and strive to maintain ties with their ancestral links while creating something entirely different. That is why everywhere you go in the Caribbean, you will find a wonderful blend of the old and the new;a melding of European and African influences, Asian and Middle Eastern components, and the new forms which themselves cannot necessarily be traced to any other origin than that of the “Caribbean”.
Who We Are
GCACC members covers a wide spectrum. We are Bankers, Attorneys, CPA’s, Elected Officials, Stock Brokers, Media, Realtors, Small Business owners, etc.; Our events have continuously received a wide range of community support, ranging from cities to the Ft. Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau, community organizations, churches, businesses, and volunteers who put in countless hours.
Enrich the cultural environment of the Caribbean people and other members of the community, by fostering multicultural understanding through an appreciation of Caribbean cultures.
Our organization is managed by a Board of Directors who votes and agrees on annual activities. There is a committee structure for each activity approved by the board. To achieve our objective of cultural diversity, the sub-committees are made up of members from different Caribbean Nations. This ensures that we have true representation from as many Caribbean countries as possible.
The Board of Directors operates under a high level of standards. All of our activities are designed to engage our diverse and multicultural community in addressing cultural understanding, and sensitivity. Our goal is to educate, and showcase the diverse cultures within our communities. Our Premier annual event is Unifest. Unifest is a high quality community event with an affordable price. Unifest features Reggae, Soca, R&B, Gospel, Jazz, and Salsa, Zouk and Compas music, in addition to other activities such as the cultural village, health fair, carnival parade, business expo, and arts & crafts.
