St Lucia Carnival in July

Saint Lucia Carnival

Carnival in Saint Lucia takes up a good piece of July, with preparations and pre Carnival events already in progress. The climax will be from 12th – 17th July. It’s an explosion of colour, noise and is tremendously important to the culture of the Caribbean. With roots in Carib and African culture, Carnival was ( and still is on many islands) celebrated to mark the end of lent. The end of that period when we give up everything, marked by a celebration of music, dancing, performance and food. In the late 90’s a forward thinking tourist board in Saint Lucia spotted the potential to move Saint Lucia’s Carnival to a month where there was no competition and to get as far away from the gigantic fiesta in Trinidad as possible!

If you are in Saint Lucia during this time, make a point of watching the ” Parade of the Bands” as a minimum. You will never forget it, we promise.

If you are staying at Rendezvous and you would like to get into costume and join in, let us know – all things are possible.
