Saint Lucia's Carnival

Lucian Carnival showcases the wonderful spirit and culture of Saint Lucia through music, dance, creativity, and color.  Costume building compeitions, community beauty pageants and high performance shows dominate this annual month-long festival.  The annual month-long festival is an exciting time when the air is filled with variations of Calypso, Soca, and Steelpan music.

The high point of the celebration usually occurs during the third week in July, beginning on Wednesday and ending on the following Tuesday.  The seemingly endless party pays homage to the island's African and Catholic heritage and is a must see in Saint Lucia.
