St. Thomas Carnival 2020 Complete Planning Guide

St. Thomas Carnival 2020 Dates – April 4, 2020 – May 2, 2020

For those who want to experience the vibrancy and beauty of the Caribbean, pack your bags and head to St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands! From April 4th to May 2nd , the island will come to life with music, dancing, festivities, and good cooking.

Carnival on St. Thomas started as a massive conglomeration of religious and cultural festivals of both the European settlers and the African slaves. With many festivities occurring in early spring, as time went on, the festivals began to blur together.

Today, Carnival blends together some of the traditional European and vibrant African dancing styles, livens with energetic African music and traditional dress, and the fusion cuisine of the Caribbean. With so many cultures blending together into one joyous celebration, there is something for everybody at V.I. Carnival.

The month-long festivities start off with a variety of pageants and performances, to awaken the island. As the month continues, the party truly revs up.

Locals take to the streets in parades, dances, and shows, such as the Calypso competitions and the steelpan concerts. The Food Fair takes over Emancipation Garden in Charlotte Amalie, showcasing the island’s many delicious and unique flavors. And to cap off the month, the streets are blocked off for the Children’s Parade and the Adult’s Parade.

With a stunning fireworks display, over the entire island, to fully welcome the spring and summer.
