Next Celebration: April 2023

VI Carnival in St. Thomas is usually a month-long event that kicks off with pageants and calypso shows, and really heats up in the last week with epic partying in J’ouvert, at the Village and during the parades. The events are usually all held in April, though some years the celebrating carries into the first week of May.

Schedule: Look at the 2023 schedule below for an idea of what you can expect.
