Offering a robust lineup with national and fringe events commencing on July 7th, the increasing demand for Saint Lucia Carnival is reaching an all-time high.

This has prompted regional carrier, Caribbean Airlines to increase its frequency to the destination with flights scheduled to arrive, and depart Saint Lucia (SLU) on July 12th, 14th, and 21st. Even more visitors from the Trinidad source market can enjoy the sounds of Dennery Segment, Soca, Calypso, and Steel Pan, party from sunrise to nightfall with the best in local, regional, and international artists, to gear up for the Parade of the Bands on July 18th and 19th.

“Saint Lucia Carnival is an experience not to be missed.  We are most excited about the vibrant display and reintegration of our cultures. As such, the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA) continues to pursue its airlift strategy focused on the objectives- retain, sustain, and regrow. With an uptick in intra-regional travel, we are looking to the Caribbean market this Summer,” remarked the CEO of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, Lorine Charles-St. Jules.

The recently concluded ‘Jazz N The City’ and ‘Jazz Sampler’ events have set the tone for a pulsating summer. Over the Whitsuntide weekend, the Veterans International Masters Football Invitational welcomed teams from the Caribbean and the United States to an atmosphere of fun and entertainment. The FIFA CONCACAF games also welcomed visiting teams from the region.

To place even more spotlight on the destination’s inspiring offerings, the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority’s Caribbean Marketing Team, ‘Caribcation Saint Lucia’ has been actively leading a series of digital campaigns. The team will also undertake in-market events with trade and media partners in key source markets of Martinique, Trinidad, and Barbados in the days ahead.

Summer activities will continue with a focus on immersive adventure and nurturing the increasing demand for the brand, Collection de Pépites.

The excitement continues with the hosting of the Free Kick Youth Football Cup from July 26th to August 1st and the return of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), at Daren Sammy Cricket Ground from September 5th – 12th

  1. ‘Oh its our heritage’ ….to get half naked and dance in the street ,,,,,just like those who danced to BAAL…..this is a sad joke for a society . Spend all the money on carnival then cant pay school fees , rent nor utilities ……..the IQ 62 is really showing.

    • Honestly i dont think carnival was like that in the past in the beginning of it sadly it has just transitioned to this half naked dancing in the street. speaking of which didnt carnival had to do with being freed from slavery that the slaves jumped up and partied in the streets?

  2. He lies doesn’t care if the whole nation dies of covid after or if he puts a massive strain on health care personnel after once the disbarred crooked lawyer and his red boys make money …. wicked dishonest boy….you will never be prime minister of this country. All you are concerned about is enriching your leech friends and their entitled children……bunch of hungry freeloading gluttons living off the backs of the very taxpayers that they turn up their noses at.

    • Stop being a branch covidian. The whole nation will not die with covid. It never would’ve nor will it ever happen. The people that died FROM covid are very very few. Many people may have died WITH covid however. It’s like having stage 4 cancer and being killed in a car accident. And yes they did count most of these as covid deaths. And yes I agree with your comments about the crooked lawyer. Not a good look for the country.

  3. A few months ago he-lier was screaming the Government brock brock brock, the treasury empty no money, now what happen, carnival is his little play toy then all in a sudden/ lots of money/ is it tax payers money or is is magic. ‘there is a time to play and a time to pray’ run as you may but it all catch up with you; in the end with this Inflation, time to call on the Lord.

  4. Soooo ….. Y’all crying for Ramen noodles prices but carnival costumes looking good eh .. smh.. And the story continues raise in busfare , food ,gas and who knows what next.. But who cares carnival is coming .. monkey pocks yay… Fire for y’all… Go n pray
