The Last Lap Lime is an annual event held jointly by five non-profit Guyanese Alumni Associations resident in Toronto, Ontario.  It is the largest congregation of Guyanese outside Guyana.

This social event ensures that Guyanese culture remains vibrant in the diaspora by celebrating what it means to be Guyanese through entertainment, food, drink and ‘liming’.  The event provides a taste of Guyanese culture to the children, grandchildren and friends of Guyanese living in the Diaspora.

Join us for a fun filled day of entertainment, laughter, and good cheer!
