The Caribbean’s Top Christmas Festival Is Back Again in the USVI

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - August 3, 2023

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. 

That ranges from the Princess and Queen pageants to the post Jan. 1 events like the food fair and J’ouvert celebration.

Most notably, this year will see the return of the popular Village Nights, which include performances fro top global and local musical acts. 

“This year, we are gearing up to go bigger and better for St. Croix’s Crucian Christmas Festival,” said Ian Turnbull, Director of Festivals. “We welcome everyone to join us for a festival season like no other.”
