In St Thomas, a Must-Visit Caribbean Carnival 

St Thomas Carnival

One of the top Carnival events in the Caribbean is set for St Thomas next month. 

The 2023 edition of St Thomas Carnival begins April 8, with a series of events celebrating the island’s vibrant local culture. 

This year’s festival is being held under the theme “Illuminating our Culture for the World to See.”

“Carnival season on St. Thomas is such a wonderful time of year. It allows us to showcase our culture, including our music, delicious food, history, design, and creativity. It dovetails perfectly with our tourism marketing campaign, ‘naturally in rhythm’ that highlights our authentic Caribbean experiences and culture.”

The first event is the Prince, Princess and Jr. Miss. contest on Sat. April  8, followed by the Carnival Queen Showcase on April 15. 

Other can’t miss events include the early dawn J’ouvert party on the waterfront, the annual Children’s and Adult Parades on Main Street in Charlotte Amalie and the Food Fair, among others. 

That’s along with the Panorama, which will include six live steel plan groups, and six different nights of top-tier local and international performances. 

“We’ve put together a spectacular series of events to showcase the rich culture, tradition and spirit of Carnival,” said Ian Turnbull, Director of the Division of Festivals. “We are grateful to our team of volunteers, sponsors, and the people of the Virgin Islands, we look forward to an even greater Carnival this year.”
