St Lucia’s 2024 ‘Nothing Sweeter Than That’ Carnival will take place from 1-17 July.

A full calendar of national and community-based activities for the celebratory season was unveiled during a recent media launch by the government, the Cultural Development Foundation, and the Carnival Planning and Management Committee.

Calypso and Soca Monarch competitions, King and Queen of the Bands, Panorama, and J’ouvert are the main highlights on the exciting agenda, along with new events such as Schools’ Panorama which will showcase the island’s talented young people.

She added that St Lucia’s carnival continues to “grow every year, in every way” offering events that cater for “every age group, every preference, and every budget”.
