History of Carnival

The St.Lucian carnival was created to honour the Catholic and African heritage of St.Lucia. It was celebrated in the lent season but was moved in the early 90’s to the month of July, so that it would not coincide with the Trinidadian Carnival in February. It is a two day festival where  revealers dance in the street displaying their colorful costumes ,  dancing to the sweet sound of the steel pan and soca music.Locals along with people from all over the world  drink and dance under the sweet St.Lucia sun and enjoy two days of complete happiness.

The Festivities

Although Carnival is celebrated on July 16th and 17th , the festivities begin way before that . In the weeks leading up to this jump up in the street , there are numerous activities to help the revealers pump up for Carnival. Some of the popular events are The calypso monarch and The Carnival Queen show.The calypso Monarch is where the best calypsonians come together to compete in numerous competitions , where their talents for music are are tested against  each other. The  Carnival queen show is where  8 of the most talented , beautiful women compete for the title of Carnival Queen.
