It’s the most beloved Christmas celebration in the Caribbean, and now St Croix’s Crucian Christmas has announced its festival dates.
This year’s event will be running from Dec. 10 through Jan. 6, 2024, according to the USVI Department of Tourism and the Curican Christmas Festival.
“As we prepare for our first of three annual carnival celebrations in the territory, I am excited and proud of the work that the entire Division of Festivals team has put in to create yet another memorable year in St. Croix,” said USVI Department of Tourism Commissioner Joseph Boschulte.
This is the 71st annual edition of the festival, which brings together Caribbean, African, Spanish, and Dutch influences to cultivate an unrivaled wintertime cultural celebration.
