Join in the fun of Jouvert and dance in the streets with thousands of revelers in the early morning hours!

The Festival Village is the main event and is open for ten big days. The music starts every night from 8 p.m. and does not stop until 2 a.m.! Vendors are selling everything from children’s toys, hand crafted goods, collectors’ tee shirts, deserts, native and continental foods and lots of spirits!

In the last two days of Festival takes in the splendor and pageantry of the Children’s and Adult’s parade. Performers and dancers occupy the streets all day wearing their beautifully crafted vibrant costumes that showcase Crucian culture.

Festival is a time for fun and family! Come and party can party all day and all night with us!
