What's Up With Saint Lucia?

Carnival in Saint Lucia for 2022!


What is Saint Lucia carnival you ask? Saint Lucia Carnival is a vibrant display of local culture and heritage on a tiny island of only 274 sq miles. This amazing celebration is taking place in the heart of the Capital, Castries, and Gros Islet, between the 14th and 21st of July, 2022. There are many amazing themed parties taking place at Rodney Bay Marina and the historical Pigeon Island where jazz also takes place in May.

Saint Lucia 2022 Carnival Planning Guide

The parades will take place on July 18-19, 2022.

HOW ARE YOU GETTING THERE? There are two airports in Saint Lucia, UVF in the south of the island which is about a 1.5-hour drive from Gros Islet, and SLU which is in Castries. SLU is a regional airport for smaller planes and tends to be a little more expensive to fly into [for international flights] but it is the more convenient airport, close to the city.

Saint. Lucia Carnival 2022 events are on the following dates: July 14 – July 21.


WHERE IS THE PARTY GOING TO BE? While some events are more coveted than others, you will have an amazing time at any you choose to attend. Remember you’re the vibe. Dates: July 12 – 21, 2022

A fully packed schedule, Saint Lucia Carnival offers several events for carnival newbies and veterans to enjoy. Here is a compiled list of all the best St. Lucia Carnival 2022 fetes happening on the island.
