Saint Lucia Carnival growing Steadily Saint Lucia is quickly earning a reputation for having one of the most enjoyable Carnival celebrations in the Caribbean. That sentiment was revealed in the latest survey of visitors who come to Saint Lucia every year for the July Festivities. Its almost a decade since Saint Lucia Carnival celebrations was moved from a pre-Lenten event in February to July to encourage more visitors to the Festival as the island would not have to compete with Trinidad and Tobago. This experiment has surely paid off, as statistics show a steady growth in arrivals for this period. Visitor arrivals to the island has certainly improved especially from neighbouring islands of Martinique, Barbados, Trinidad, Guadeloupe and St. Vincent & the Grenadines. What makes Saint Lucia Carnival unique is the presence of all cultural art forms like theatre, music, dance, song, costumes and drama and this year is no exception.
