Culture/Events: 

In the past 500 years, seven nations have governed the U.S. Virgin Islands, leaving a rich tapestry of diverse culture, cuisine, architecture, customs and music. Residents of the USVI enjoy a vibrant arts and entertainment scene, as well as a variety of deeply rooted cultural traditions and celebrations.

The USVI plays host to three annual carnival celebrations—one each on the islands of St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix—affording residents a chance to celebrate the territory’s rich, historic culture with dance, music and food. Locals spend months building floats, sewing costumes, training horses and selecting queens, princes and princesses, all in preparation for the highly anticipated occasion.
