The Saint Lucia Tourism Authority will host the official launch of the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival this evening, at the Pigeon Island National Landmark.

“This week indeed will be an amazing one as we see the launch of the revamped Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival,” Minister for Tourism, Investment, Creative Industries, Culture and Information, Hon. Dr. Ernest Hilaire, said yesterday, at a post-Cabinet press briefing.

“The arts component will be a critical part of the festival along with all of the other creatives who will get a chance to showcase their talents on an international stage.”

Earlier today, the minister met with the agencies responsible for the approval of mass crowd events in Saint Lucia to find efficient ways for event promoters to host activities.

He said: “As we gear up for Jazz, Carnival, Emancipation, Jounen Kweyol and all of our other festivities, we must ensure that the safety of all patrons and the wider public are protected. The event sector is growing and is becoming a prominent part of the Creative Industries, thus it is necessary to provide an enabling environment.”

The official launch of the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival will begin at 6:30 p.m. The event will be broadcast LIVE on the National Television Network (NTN), channel 122, and via the Government of Saint Lucia’s Facebook and YouTube pages.

  1. I am in Soufriere as I am posting. Bunch of unkempt beggars harassing the tourists. Can someone finally put an end to this madness? This is where you earn revenue. Be grateful and protect the location as if you make money there. Crying shame.

  2. The stiff upper lips event is back nothing will be said of it, as per norm all Reggae Acts will be thrown to the Marchland Stage or Cricket Grounds and all R and B/Jazz will be on Pigeon island. Carnival will be bashed and be blamed for the uptick in Corona and call a waste of time.
