Saint Lucia Carnival is back this year after a two year hiatus. This year’s Carnival will feature a variety of events including the ever-popular Calypso and Soca Monarchs, Panorama (Steel Pan Competitions), National Carnival Queen Pageant, King and Queen of the Bands competition, and a line up of fetes and boat rides. The season culminates in an exciting, fun-filled two-day street parade of live bands and DJ music, stunning Carnival costumes and the joyous and energetic revelry on July 18th and 19th. This is a very special celebration of Caribbean history, culture and creativity. St Lucia Carnival is recognised as one of the top Carnivals in the Caribbean and becomes a more vibrant and creative event each year.
