Easter
The days of Holy Week are the most solemn on the Saint Lucian
calendar. The dominant Catholic traditions are evident during this
time, particularly on Good Friday. Easter Sunday resembles
Christmas Day with its church services, gift-giving and fetes.
Let clients know that Easter weekend is also one of the best times
for kite flying.

The Annual Saint Lucia Jazz Festival
All eyes focus on Saint Lucia for 10 days each May when the Saint
Lucia Jazz Festival welcomes renowned international musicians
who perform at Pigeon Island National Park and other island
venues. From its inception in 1992, Saint Lucia Jazz Festival has
grown and is now regarded as the premiere jazz event of the
Caribbean. The festival is a series of concerts that bring together
elements of jazz, rhythm and blues, pop and world music. Saint
Lucia Jazz Festival draws international jazz greats who perform
on the primary stage, Pigeon Island National Park, as well as
various hotels, restaurants and nightspots throughout the island.

Multiple shows embrace straight-ahead jazz, and new age
jazz, with acts originating from the United States, Africa, the
Caribbean, Latin America and Europe. Past performances have
included those of George Benson and Wynton Marsalis, to name
only a couple.
The annual festival forms part of the Soleil Suite of festivals
and includes Jazz on the Square, a popular week-long event
with St. Lucians and visitors alike. The Derek Walcott Square in
downtown Castries becomes a central hangout spot where free
concerts run from mid-day to tea-time, and continues from
6 p.m. on into the evening. This part of the Saint Lucia Jazz
Festival offers Lucians and visitors a chance to meet, greet and
listen to great music from local and other Caribbean artists.
Additionally, Jazz at Pigeon Point National Park is a 2-day, openair, picnic-style event that essentially is the highlight of the entire
festival and stars many of the main stage artists and performers.
For this big event, reserve well ahead. And for the Saint Lucia
Jazz Festival dates and updates, visit stlucia.org/jazz-festival.
