And this year’s St Thomas Carnival now has a date, running from April 28 to May 5, 2024. 

This will be the 72nd annual Carnival celebration in St Thomas, with everything from boisterous J’ouvert parties to Pan-O-Rama and everything in between. 

“I am excited to welcome everyone to join us for the 2024 St. Thomas Carnival,” said Joseph Boschulte, U.S. Virgin Islands Commissioner of Tourism. “This year, we are preparing to make this the best Carnival yet, highlighting our rich culture, picturesque island, and beautiful people.”

That’s along with the delicious Food Fair on May 1. 

It’s part of an exciting calendar that has made the US Virgin Islands one of the Caribbean’s top event destinations, from the recently-concluded Crucian Christmas to the ever-popular St John Celebration.
