Saint Lucia Carnival is one of the island’s biggest events, so it is no surprise that this carnival grows every year. The 2024 edition of this Caribbean Carnival is expected to be even bigger and better as more inviting events are added to the schedule of activities.  Activities run from around July 1st through 17th and feature a variety of popular traditional events, fetes, boat rides and more.

These include the National Carnival Queen Pageant (June 29th), the Junior Carnival, the Inter-Commercial Calypso Competition (July 4th), National Soca & Groovy Monarch (July 5th), National Calypso Monarch (July 6th), Panorama (Steel Pan Competition), King and Queen of the Bands (July 8th), and National J’Ouvert (July. 15th). Carnival culminates in an exciting, fun-filled two-day street parade of live bands, DJ music, colourful carnival costumes, and the joyous and energetic revelry on July 15th and 16th.

These plus a full slate of more than 20 fetes and boat rides make Saint Lucia’s carnival the one not to miss.  It is a very special celebration of Caribbean culture and creativity. St Lucia Carnival is recognized as one of the top Carnivals in the Caribbean and becomes a more vibrant and creative event each year. Travellers from all over the world converge on the island to participate in this exhilarating Carnival.
